Lesotho failed to use their home advantage as they played to a 1-1 draw during their 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Comoros at Setsoto Stadium in Maseru on Tuesday evening.

Although the hosts netted first in the opening stanza through Tsepo Seturmane, the visitors pulled one back in the second half courtesy of Mohamed Changama to ensure both sides shared the spoils.

Although both sides finished in a dull goalless stalemate last Wednesday in Comoros, the second leg failed to ignite some sparks in the players in an aim to find a winner.

However, the aggregate score is 1-1 and the Islanders are through to the next stage of the qualifiers to meet the Black Stars of Ghana thanks to the away goal rule.

Lesotho coach Seephephe Matete will be disappointed with the result as he would have liked to see his side finishing better at home and go through to the next round.

On the other hand, his counterpart Amir Abdou will be relived to go through, but will have to get his troops ready for the battle against the Ghanaians.
