LCS take cautious approach

HARARE - Lesotho Correctional Services coach Mosholu Mokhothu says his team will employ a cautious approach when they face Dynamos in the African Champions League at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.  

LCS arrived in the Zimbabwean capital Wednesday night after a gruelling road trip and had their first workout at Raylton Sports Club yesterday morning.

 Speaking after the morning session, Mokhothu said LCS will look to contain Dynamos in Harare, and then use home advantage to finish off the Zimbabwean champions in the reverse fixture at Maseru's Setsoto Stadium in a fortnight.

 “I am very happy to start here because that gives us an advantage when we go back especially if play well here,” Mokhothu told the Daily News yesterday. “I have coached this team twice in this tournament and I am now aware of what we must do when you play away.

 “I am going to use a cautious approach in this game without conceding many goals. We have never progressed from the preliminaries and I am looking forward to progress now. I heard Dynamos are a high-scoring team so we need to be careful about that. We are going to deny them scoring.”

On their way to Harare, the Maseru-based outfit passed through Botswana, where they engaged Gaborone United in a practice match which ended a goalless.

 LCS also played out a goalless draw with South African Premier League side Free State Stars in another warm-up match in Maseru.

During last year’s edition, LCS failed on the first hurdle when they lost to Uganda’s Revenue Authority on a 3-0 aggregate scoreline.

LCS, who have won back-to-back league titles in Lesotho, will be without the duo of striker Lawrence Molengoana and defender Paseka Morongoane, who are out through injuries. - Godknows Matarutse
