Lesotho will be out for revenge when they host Seychelles in a Group J 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Maseru on Tuesday. Kick-off at Setsoto Stadium is set for 15h00 CAT.
The Crocodiles suffered their third straight defeat in the qualifiers on Saturday when they were beaten 2-0 in Victoria by the Islanders, who are up to four points in the group and level with second-placed Ethiopia.
Gervais Waye-Hive and Dine Suzette scored the goals for the Pirates, who will be hoping that this away match ends in a better result than their last, a 0-4 thrashing at the hands of group leaders Algeria in Blida back in June last year.
Lesotho’s previous home match was also a defeat to Algeria, with the Southern Africans going down 1-3 in Maseru in September.
Tanzanian referee Israel Mujuni will take charge of the match in Maseru. The other Group J clash sees Ethiopia host Algeria in Addis Ababa on the same day.
