Botswana head coach Peter Butler was pleased with how Lesenya Ramoraka and Ofentse Nato performed against Lesotho over the weekend.

The duo helped the Zebras of Botswana overcome Lesotho's Likoena 2-1 in an international friendly match at the Serowe Sports Complex.

When speaking to local media, English tactician Butler explained that it was good to see Nato feature for his side and Ramoraka impressing.

"Good workout for us and opportunity to give different players game time and more especially Ofentse 'Size 10' Nato who got 45 minutes," Butler said.

"All in all good to blow the cobwebs away and get back into competitive action, I thought Lesenya Ramoraka was outstanding at left back."

The Zebras will host Malawi in another international friendly match at the Francistown Sports Complex in the City of Francistown this Saturday.

Butler's men are scheduled to host Uganda in the 2017 AFCON qualifier at the same venue on the 4th of June 2016.
