But as things stand; the sharing of the spoils with Majantja has no negative effect on the Mafeteng-based outfit as they have a comfortable 49 points on top of the EPL with about three matches left. It is safe to bet on Bantu lifting the 2017/2018EPL championship. Now, Lioli can only rely on the arithmetical calculations to oust Bantu suppose the Teyayaneng-based team win all their remaining matches with the huge goal margins. Realistically, this looks like a mammoth task for the inconsistence-prone Lioli.
However, Bantu’s mentor, James Madidilane believes it is too early for his troops to engage in celebratory mode. Madidilane said the league is normally won during the last match, but he however does not deny that his team stands a better chance than any other team in the EPL to be crowned the champions, come the end of season.
