Highlanders, Dynamos verdict on Monday


The verdict on the abandoned BancABC semi-final match between Highlanders and Dynamos is expected on Monday.

Premier Soccer League (PSL) chief executive officer Kenny Ndebele confirmed the developments Friday.

“The PSL ad hoc committee met and deliberated on the issue. The decision that the three- member board is going to come up with will be made available at the latest on Monday. Their decision will be final and all parties involved should abide by that decision,” Ndebele said.

The three members who constituted the board are Don Moyo, a legal practitioner and chairman of the PSL Disciplinary Committee, former referee Brighton Mudzamiri and Cuthbert Chitima, the PSL board member (development).

The Highlanders-Dynamos match was abandoned on August 21 due to bad light at Barbourfields Stadium after the two teams had taken turns to leave the pitch contesting penalties that were awarded to both teams by referee Brighton Malandule.

Ndebele also talked about the Gunners-Dynamos league match which was supposed to have been played on the first day of the domestic Premier league.

“The issue is under control. We have since looked into the issue and deliberated on it.

“As PSL we received communication from Gunners where they were expressing their dissatisfaction on the ruling that was given by the committee that made a resolution that the match must be replayed.

“Their appeal sought to overturn a PSL Disciplinary Committee judgment that called for a replay of the match.

Gunners were worried about the expenses that they incurred preparing for the match.

“But I can tell you that the match is going to be replayed before the season gets into second round.”

Dynamos failed to fulfil the fixture on April 17 and claimed that they had been advised by Zifa not to do so as they were preparing to play Highlanders in the Uhuru Cup final at the National Sports Stadium on April 18.
