Premiership takes a break
The premier league has taken a break to accommodate the national team’s back-to-back 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers against Seychelles. Lesotho play the island nation on Saturday away in Victoria and at Setsoto Stadium on Tuesday next week as they battle to save their campaign for a place at the final tournament in Gabon.likuena are bottom of Group J after losing all their two qualifiers against Ethiopia and Algeria but coach Moses Maliehe is not throwing in the towel just as yet.
Meanwhile, Lioli last Sunday reclaimed top spot on the Vodacom Premier League table thanks to a 1-0 win over fellow title-contenders LCS. The win saw the race for the league championship take yet another new turn after Matlama had assumed the leadership the previous weekend.with just six matches to go before the season comes to a close, Lioli now lead the 14-team pack on 45 points, followed by Matlama and LCS on 43 and 41, respectively.
And with fourth-placed Sundawana on 33 points, it appears the premiership has become a three-horse race. At the other end of the table, basement side Mphatlalatsane look set for relegation after accumulating a mere 12 points from 20 games. Rovers, Linare and LMPS are also at the wrong end of the log and cannot afford to lose any more points if they are to retain their topflight spot. After this short break, premier league action resumes on 2 April.
Next premier league fixtures April 2: Bantu v LCS, Mphatlalatsane v Matlama, Sundawana v LMPS, Liphakoe v Linare. April 3: Rovers v Likila United, Kick4life v LDF, Likhopo v Lioli.
