Mutare City to know fate to­day

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo

REL­E­GA­TION haunted Mutare City Rovers will know their fate to­day fol­low­ing the use of a sus­pended player dur­ing a league clash against cham­pi­onship con­tenders FC Plat­inum ear­lier this month.

The match in which sus­pended Ku­dak­washe Gu­rure played for 87 min­utes ended 1-1, a re­sult which favoured Mutare City Rovers, but it could re­turn to haunt Nor­man Mapeza’s FC Plat­inum for the two points lost rather than a point gained.

“We are is­su­ing a state­ment to­mor­row af­ter both clubs were asked to give us re­ports on the in­ci­dent,” said Premier Soc­cer League chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Kennedy Nde­bele.

Mutare City Rovers, who have 20 points on the league ta­ble, just one place above the drop zone, are seven points above 15th-placed Tsholot­sho.

The PSL is likely to charge Mutare City Rovers un­der Or­der 36, sec­tion 1.4 which reads: “Use of an un­reg­is­tered/in­el­i­gi­ble player in a league match, three points will be de­ducted and thrown away and a fine as set by the league from time to time.”

FC Plat­inum will keep their sin­gle point gained from the match.

Iz­iqholo zeZh­wane will be keenly fol­low­ing de­vel­op­ments as any de­ducted points from their rel­e­ga­tion ri­vals will hand them a life­line in their sur­vival bat­tle. — @skhu­moyo2000
