MASERU — League champions Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) will take on Uganda Revenue Authority Sports Club in a Caf African Champions League preliminary round tie in Kampala on Saturday.
The reigning Lesotho football kings stepped up their preparations for the encounter this week.
The club said nothing short of a win will do for Masheshena as they seek to progress to the next stage of Africa’s biggest club football tournament.
LCS coach Mosholu “Shoes” Mokhothu told the Sunday Express on Friday they were ready to conquer Africa.
“We are ready for the tie against the Ugandan champions,” Mokhothu said. “The players are ready both mentally and physically and we are looking forward to making both Masheshena supporters and the nation proud.”
Mokhothu added he was happy with the team’s preparations for the tie.
“We’ve been training and preparing for this game for the past three weeks and I am extremely satisfied with the players’ performance,” he said.
“The players are ready to proceed to the next stage of the competition and even to the finals.”
Morale in camp is said to be high with Mokhuthu reporting no injuries in his 18-player squad.
“The injuries have healed and we currently don’t have any player nursing any injuries,” he said.
Mokhothu added his game plan is very clear despite the fact that Uganda Revenue Authority Sports Club are a closed book to them.
“Our game plan is very clear. We want to come back with a win and deny them any scoring opportunity.
“We are going there with clear minds that our main mission is to decrease our chances of conceding goals but turn our opportunities into goals,” he said.
Meanwhile, LCS general secretary Lehlohonolo Matlosa said the team is set to leave the country on Wednesday. “We are leaving the country on Wednesday and are set to arrive in Uganda on the same day,” Matlosa said.
