Lions’ ownership battles have seen the team losing key players with more expected to leave the Gaborone West-based club. On the pitch, Rollers enjoyed a lion’s share of the ball but neither team made clear goal scoring chances in the first 10 minutes.

However against the run of play, Patrick Kaunda broke with pace, saw his initial shot parried back into play with the ball falling on his path. The striker struck with the second bite of the cherry to give Lions the lead in the 11th minute. Five minutes, later Maano Ditshupo tucked in from close range after the keeper spilled Segolame Boy’s shot, to level matters. In the 20th minute, Rollers nearly took the lead but Edwin Moalosi’s free kick hit the cross bar. Popa eventually surged ahead after 27 minutes following a scramble in the box. The ball fell onto Moalosi’s path, who laid a pass to Terrence Mandaza and the striker finished at the far post for his eighth goal of the campaign. Rollers led 2-1 at interval.
