PSL play-offs will resume
THE Premier Soccer League yesterday confirmed dates and venues for the promotional play-offs fixtures that had been suspended following a dispute between Blackburn Rovers and Chippa United.
The play-offs will resume this weekend in Cape Town after Blackburn Rovers lost their case against Chippa United, whom they had hoped to replace in the competition after accusing them of fielding an improperly registered player.
PSL general manager of football Derek Blanckensee said: "We are glad that all the legal matters have been resolved. It's important for us to now focus on the football."
The fixtures now read:
Wednesday, June 20: Santos vs Chippa United at Athlone Stadium, 7.30pm;
Saturday, June 23: Santos vs Thanda Royal Zulu at Athlone Stadium, 8.15pm;
Wednesday, June 27: Thanda Royal Zulu vs Chippa United at Richards Bay Stadium, 2pm;
