PSL matches cancelled


The five Premiership matches that had been pencilled for Saturday have been cancelled following requests from the clubs that were due to take part in the games.

Premier Soccer League (PSL) chief executive officer Kennedy yesterday confirmed that the matches would no longer be played.

“The matches have been postponed, I have talked to the chairman (Twine Phiri) and we have agreed that the games be cancelled,” Ndebele said.

According to the PSL fixtures, the week 10 matches were supposed to be played last weekend, but could not take place, making way for the Benjani Mwaruwari testimonial match at the National Sports Stadium.

The exhibition match would have been a counter-attraction to the league matches and some clubs had more than three players playing for the Warriors in the farewell-to-international-football tribute match for Mwaruwari.

It would appear the Warriors 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Guinea at either the National Sports Stadium or Rufaro on Sunday has also affected the local league fixtures.

Log leaders Highlanders were supposed to take on Chicken Inn at Barbourfields Stadium, but that match has been cancelled and so are the matches pitting Buffaloes and Gunners at Sakubva Stadium, Monomotapa and Blue Rangers at Rufaro and Black Mambas and Motor Action at Morris Depot.

Caps United had also been scheduled to travel to Ascot Stadium in Gweru for a date with Hardbody on Saturday, but that match has also been cancelled as Warriors gaffer Rahman Gumbo has added two more players from Makepekepe to his camp in preparation for the Guinea match.

Rahman Kutsanzira and David Sengu join Tapiwa Khumbuyani and Nyasha Mukumbi in the Warriors camp.

Initially, only three matches had been postponed as the clubs had players involved with the Warriors. The Dynamos and Harare City match had been postponed as the former have Takesure Chinyama, Partson Jaure and Denver Mukamba trying their luck in the national team.

FC Platinum were supposed to host Quelaton at Mandava, but the platinum miners have Gumbo, Charles Sibanda and Welcome Ndiweni in the Warriors camp.

Hwange’s Timothy Sibanda, Rodwell Chinyengetere and Francisco Zvikumbawire are with the Warriors and their match against Shabanie Mine at the Colliery had been put on hold.
