Defeat a wake-up call, say LDF

MASERU — Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) Football Club on
Friday said last week’s two-nil loss to Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) was
a wake-up call.

LDF communications and marketing manager Donny Nthakha
described the shock defeat as a blessing in disguise.

“Sometimes one has to lose in order to realise the
importance of working extra hard,” Nthakha said.

Thursday’s loss was LDF’s first defeat since the
beginning of the season in August.

This however did not change LDF’s position in the Vodacom
Premier League log as they are still leading with 25 points.

They have played 12 games, won seven, drew four and only
lost one.

Before the loss, LDF were the only premier league team
which was still to taste defeat.

LCS on the other hand closed the gap between them and the
pacesetters LDF as they are now in second position with 24 points.

Nthakha said LDF was getting too comfortable in the
league and this was a wake-up call to start working hard.

“I think we were now getting too comfortable and we
somewhere lost grip. Unfortunately we had to suffer in order to wake up,” he

He however said losing to LCS was not something that
should embarrass his team because LCS is a strong team.

“It’s a good thing we’ve lost to a big team like LCS but
they should not relax because they know very well that anything can happen in
football,” Nthakha said.

He said they were now going to work extra hard to ensure
that they maintain their lead in the race.

“Other teams must not be fooled, we are going the extra mile to ensure
that we maintain our lead.”
