The prevailing rainy weather conditions have left Lesotho Premier League concerned ahead of the Vodacom Premier league second round kickoff this weekend.
Speaking in an interview, Lesotho Premier League General Manager, Mr. Baitsi Motsamai said as the Lesotho Premier League, they are a little bit concerned that some of the opening premier league games might be disrupted by the current rain showers.
He said they are particularly worried about the match between Liphakoe and Rovers to be played at Quthing due to the nature of the venue, which could pose a threat for the match to be played under the wet conditions.
“We just hope for the best that the current rainfall will not affect the second round fixture, especially the one to be played at Quthing,” he commented.
He said the Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) against Linare games as well as Botha Bothe Warriors up against Kick4Life to be played at the LCS ground and at the Maputsoe District Football Association in Leribe will still be played under any conditions.
Mr. Motsamai also said he was not quite certain about the drainage of the Leshoboro Seeiso stadium in Mafeteng that will host Bantu and FC Likhopo game on Sunday, saying the Lioli game against Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) and Sandawana against Sky Battalion ones are not a concern unless anything serious like lightening and thunderstorms occur.
Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS) and Matlama game will be played at the Police Training College (PTC) on Sunday.
Bantu FC is currently the league pacesetters despite having lost their last league match 1-0 against Matlama last weekend while Botha Bothe Warriors and FC Likhopo are fighting to avoid the axe at the end of the season as they occupy 14th and 13th positions as the second round kicks off.
