K4L face Majantja in first game of 2018
Leslie Notsi’s Kick4Life are set to face Majantja this weekend when they travel to Mohale’s Hoek in the Econet Premier League.
The team returned to training on Wednesday after the summer holidays and will take on the Premier League rookies on Sunday, 15:00hrs.
This fixture was postponed in December due to Kick4Life Coach Notsi together with his two players, Bonang Mohapi and Mokoteli Mohapi being involved in the national U20 COSAFA Cup held in Zambia.
Speaking ahead of the game, Notsi said his troops are ready for the clash as they geared up for this tie on Wednesday.
“We resumed our training on Wednesday, the boys are in good shape, and they are looking forward to the match. Although it’s not going to be an easy task but we have to collect points and get back into the mix,” he said.
Despite the team having a tough start of the season where they faced big clubs like LCS, Lioli and Bantu, and their fixtures being rescheduled, the Old Europa side managed pick some points and in the last league encounter they defeated Linare 3-0.
Khubetsoana Kamela seems to have found his rhythm in the club of late, scoring 3 goals in the last two matches.
Majantja is currently in the eleventh spot in the log and are one game ahead of Kick4Life who are in the seventh place.
However, both teams are on level points of fifteen. Majantja were unfortunate to lose their mentor Motlatsi Shale to death after producing wonders in their first season since returning into the elite league.
They have Liteboho Nkune and Kopano Mohau who are marshalling their defence very well. They started the season like a house on fire winning back to back games and securing a draw against giants Lioli. However they slowed down their pace towards the end of the first half of the season.
Despite all that, Majantja has done so well so far and looks to have escaped the relegation threat. Playing at their own backyard will be an added advantage as they have a large supporter base.
