Kaizer Chiefs’ title challenge has been boosted by Safa arbitrator Nazeer Cassim’s ruling on Friday that the two matches they missed due to a Covid-19 outbreak should be rescheduled.
Cassim ruled in Chiefs favour when he ordered that the two matches against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows should be played.
Amakhosi had challenged the PSL’s decision not to grant them postponements of the two matches following an outbreak of Covid-19 in their camp last December. They failed to pitch up for both games.
In his ruling Cassim said:
“I am averse to the litigation process deciding the winner. It is better that the results of the match be determined in the field.”
But Chiefs were ordered to pay the legal costs of the league, the senior and junior counsel and of the arbitrator.
