This year’s Absa Premiership relegation battle could take an interesting turn in the near future, with Jomo Cosmos being at risk of being docked points.
Read: Stars Docked Points
The Siya crew has been informed that Ezenkosi are being accused of fielding an illegible player in one of the games that they won this season, a player who is playing for the club despite having no international clearance.
According to Siya sources, SAFA have taken the matter to the PSL and are now waiting to hear back as to whether Jomo Sono’s side will be taken the Dispute Resolutions Chamber for their actions.
The PSL’s DRC announced earlier this week that they had docked Platinum Stars one point after fielding Siyabonga Zulu ineligibly earlier this season, and – if found guilty – Cosmos may face a similar fate.
Given that Cosmos currently find themselves four points clear of bottom-placed Maritzburg United and level with University of Pretoria, a docking of points could severely hinder their chances of Absa Premiership survival.
The matter is currently with the PSL, and it remains to be seen if there will be any action taken against Cosmos, especially before the season is out.
