We don’t fear Lioli, say Nyenye

MASERU — At last week’s MGC Super 8 draw Premier League new-boys Nyenye Rovers were handed the toughest possible fixture.

The tiny Leribe outfit will face Lesotho’s champions Lioli, a side boasting Likuena internationals Bushy Moletsane, Thabo Masualle, Sello Muso and Mohau Kuenane and with a budget more than double that of Rovers.

So when Rovers take the field on Saturday in the David and Goliath clash they will surely be quaking in their boots.

Not so according to the club’s director Hopolang Ntšeli. The side from Nyenye say they are not scared — they are just looking forward to the game at Butha-Buthe’s Pitso Ground.

“I wouldn’t say we are scared, we are looking forward to the challenge,” Ntšeli told the Lesotho Times yesterday.

“Of course there is that bit of fear but it is a lot of excitement. We respect Lioli but we are going to fight for a win.”

On Sunday the other new boys, Bantu, will have a similarly tough task when they face LDF, last year’s Premier League runners-up, at Matsieng on Sunday. Defending champions LCS face Arsenal, while LMPS take on Butha-Buthe Fast XI.
