Kaizer Chiefs‘ request to have five of their matches postponed due to Covid-19 could be rejected by the Premier Soccer League (PSL).
On Friday, Amakhosi confirmed writing to the PSL, asking then to postpone matches against Cape Town City (4 December), Golden Arrows (8 December), Sekhukhune (12 December), Royal AM (19 December) and Maritzburg United (22 December).
And that’s because 31 of their personnel have tested positive for Covid-19, but that request could be rejected.
The South African has it on good authority that the PSL is discussing Amakhosi’s request, and the league is actually NOT willing to postpone the matches.
What this means is that Chiefs may have to make other plans in order to honour the aforementioned fixtures scheduled for December.
THE PRECEDENCE SET BY PSL
The precedence previously set by the PSL put Amakhosi’s request in jeopardy, and here is what happened in January 2021.
The now-defunct Cape Umoya United lost three points to Cape Town Spurs as the club failed to honour the fixture due after half of their squad tested positive for Covid-19.
And that precedence means Chiefs could forfeit the 15 points at stake, and IF that happens, it would certainly put an end to their title dreams.
