Local champions to battle LDF

MASERU — League champions Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) will today lock horns with pacesetters Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) in a Vodacom Premier League tie at Central Prisons.

The game had been earlier scheduled to take place last Saturday but had to be postponed due to LCS’s Champions League assignment away in Kampala, Uganda.

LCS fell to a morale-sapping three-nil defeat to Uganda Revenue Authority last Saturday.

Lesotho Football Association (Lefa) communications officer, Mikea Kalati, told the Lesotho Times on Tuesday that the game had now been rescheduled for this afternoon.

“The match between the two sides will be played on Thursday (today),” Kalati said.

“The match will be played at the Central Prisons but the (teams) are yet to confirm the time.”

LCS’ other premier league tie against Majantja was also postponed for the same reason last weekend.

LCS will come into today’s match a wounded side after suffering the embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Ugandan champions.

The local champions will need to salvage their reputation and restore their wounded pride by beating LDF this afternoon.

LCS are currently in second position with 21 points after 11 matches on the Vodacom Premier League log.

They are four points behind LDF and have lost only two games.

On the other hand, LDF will go into the match as the only team in the Vodacom Premier League that has remained unbeaten after 11 games since the start of the season in August last year.

The last time the two giants met was in August last year at Ratjomose with LDF coming out victors at 2 — 1.
