JOHANNESBURG - Yet another Absa Premiership match was postponed in Rustenburg on Saturday night as the PSL faces serious problems in completing the league season in an already congested schedule.
The clash between Platinum Stars and Free State Stars, scheduled to start at 8.15pm at Moruleng Stadium, was called off by match commissioner Steve Goddard at 8.50pm.
Goddard confirmed that the match would be played at a later date, but with poor weather conditions affecting a handful of games already this season, the PSL has a tough time ahead in completing the scheduled fixtures.
The season has already been condensed to accommodate Bafana's preparations for next year's World Cup.
Free State Stars coach Gordon Igesund said the PSL could not afford to postpone any more games, but admitted there was little option as an ongoing thunderstorm caused a blackout, plunging the stadium into darkness as lightning struck overhead.
"It's disappointing, but it's the right decision," Igesund said.
Platinum Stars coach Steve Komphela seemed unperturbed by the postponement. His side is floating mid-table, faces no hope of winning the league title and is safe from relegation - for now at least. - Sapa
