Lesotho Times - - Sport - mikia Kalati

ADIVISION sides, Gal­axy and Swal­lows, are on the verge of win­ning pro­mo­tion to the top flight in the next two weeks.

The Hlotse-based Gal­axy, who cur­rently lead the North­ern Stream A Di­vi­sion stand­ings have a chance of se­cur­ing pro­mo­tion when they face se­cond placed Litšilo on Satur­day.

Gal­axy have 33 points with two games to go.

The team is coached by for­mer Mat­lama player, Tha­bang Busa.

On the other hand, Litšilo can also go on top if they win Satur­day’s clash be­fore the last game of the sea­son.

At the bottom of the ta­ble in the North­ern Stream, are for­mer premier league side Mphat­lalat­sane is in dan­ger of be­ing rel­e­gated to the B di­vi­sion.

Mean­while, in the South Stream, Swal­lows have a good chance of re­turn­ing to top flight foot­ball as they lead the league with 34 points ahead of Litha­ba­neng Golden FC in the se­cond po­si­tion with 30 points.

The Mazenod side are also two games be­hind and can move to­wards pro­mo­tion with a win in their away game to Quthing LMPS this Satur­day.

The match had to be ca was washed away by heavy rains some weeks back and will be re­played this week­end.

Swal­lows have 34 points in the bag ahead of Golden who have 31 with just one match to go.

A Di­vi­sion Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee (ADMACO) pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer, Mo- thusilet­sie,ad­mit­tedthatthe­leagueis poised for a photo fin­ish. “We have two games to go in the North­ern Stream, but we have a game that is likely to de­cide the sin­gle au­to­matic spot this Satur­day in Leribe,” Let­sie said.

“We are in a sit­u­a­tion where if Gal­axy win their match on Satur­day, they would have qual­i­fied into the premier league, but if it’s Litšilo on the win­ning side then it goes to the wire in their re­spec­tive last matches.

“At the bottom, it’s pretty much over for Mphat­lalat­sane as they have to win with a big mar­gin in the last matches if Lik­ila does not get a draw in their match against Limkok­wing FC.”

He said Rovers are also des­tined for de­mo­tion with two matches left as Qoal­ing High­landers who sit se­cond from last were not out of their reach in the south­ern stream.

The Univer­sity side were rel­e­gated from top flight foot­ball last sea­son and keep slid­ing fur­ther down.

Let­sie also com­mended all the teams for an en­ter­tain­ing sea­son and said there were few off the field in­ci­dents that threat­ened the san­ity of the league.

He said they await a de­ci­sion from the foot­ball gov­ern­ing body LEFA and the Premier League Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee (PLMC) over a pend­ing de­ci­sion as to how many teams would be rel­e­gated from the league.

This is af­ter San­dawana were dis­qual­i­fied from the premier league for fail­ure to hon­our some of its matches.
