Li­oli go for the kill

Lesotho Times - - Sport - Mikia Kalati

Li­oli coach Mosholu ‘ Shoes’ Mokhothu wants his charges to be ruth­less when they face Rovers on Satur­day in the penul­ti­mate round of the 2015/16 Vo­da­com Pre­mier League sea­son.

Ta­ble-top­ping Tse Nala are brim­ming with con­fi­dence af­ter a hard­fought 1-0 win over Mat­lama last Satur­day and could be crowned cham­pi­ons this week­end if they beat Rovers and second-placed Mat­lama lose against third-placed LCS.

Both matches take place on Satur­day with the Li­oli/rovers clash set for Set­soto while Mat­lama take on LCS at LCS Ground.

How­ever, Mokhothu has warned his play­ers not to get car­ried away with last week­end’s win over their ti­tle-ri­vals as Rovers are a dan­ger­ous side des­per­ate for max­i­mum points to en­hance their chances of avoid­ing rel­e­ga­tion.

“We are happy that we beat Mat­lama who are our ri­vals in this ti­tle race, but the bat­tle is not over yet,” Mokhothu said.

“The match against Rovers is equally important and we can­not af­ford to drop points as this might come back to haunt us.”

Ac­cord­ing to Mokhothu, each game has be­come important as teams fight not to lose points in their last two matches of the sea­son.

“There is no small team in this ter he was put in tem­po­rary charge of the na­tional team, Maliehe said: “For ev­ery coach, there is that de­sire to want to con­tinue, es­pe­cially when you have done well in your first sea­son in charge of a team. i still very much want to con­tinue with Mat­lama, but i will sit down with man­age­ment to dis­cuss the way for­ward.”

Mean­while, LMPS on Satur­day host Lik­ila United as both sides bat­tle to sur­vive the dreaded chop to the A Di­vi­sion.

on Sun­day, Linare will be hop­ing to con­sol­i­date their topflight sta­tus when they take on Mphat­lalat­sane in a rel­e­ga­tion scrap set for Ma­put­soe DIFA Ground while Likhopo host Kick­4life at LCS Ground.

Sun­day’s other two matches will see Sun­dawana host Bantu in Butha-buthe in a po­ten­tially fierce top-four fight while Liphakoe go head-to-head with LDF as both sides bat­tle for a top-eight fin­ish.
