MASERU — Former premiership champions Arsenal look poised for a quick return to the topflight league next season as the Vodacom A-Division takes a month-long break.
Arsenal — who won the Premier League championship in 1989, 1991 and 1993 — are top of the A-Division’s Southern Stream with 22 points after they beat Maseru Naughty Boys 2-1 away from home last Sunday.
The victory gave Arsenal a three-point cushion going into the festive season break after their nearest challengers, Mabeoana, were beaten 0-1 away at Sefothafotha.
At the foot of the table, the situation remains dire for former premiership outfit Sekamaneng Young Stars, who are still without a win this season and find themselves facing a second, successive relegation to the Vodacom B-Division.
The Northern Stream is headed by Leribe outfit Mpharane Celtics who jumped into first position after beating bottom-of-the-log Berea LMPS 4-1 last week.
The loss was Berea LMPS’s eighth in a row, giving them the worst record in the fist division this season.
Mpharane Celtics are followed by Butha-Buthe Fast XI, who are the only unbeaten side in Lesotho’s top two divisions.
