With Kaizer Chiefs having confirmed the date for their outstanding scheduled match against Cape Town City, there is a dilemma as the Mother City outfit has defended the club's previous stance on the matter.
Earlier this week, Chiefs confirmed that the PSL has given the dates of April 27 and 30 to play their scheduled matches against Golden Arrows and the Citizens respectively, this after the Soweto giants failed to honour the fixtures in December due to the Covid-19 outbreak at the club.
Amakhosi won their case at a SAFA arbitration, and as ordered by arbitrator Nazeer Cassim, the matches have to be replayed, although it seems that City are not keen to travel to Johannesburg again after Chiefs failed to show up when Eric Tinkler and the team were at FNB Stadium in December.
As reported by the Siya crew, Chiefs and the PSL are set to face off at the Johannesburg High Court on May 10 as part of the ongoing dispute between the parties over the ruling, while City watch on.
With the date of the match fast approaching, the Citizens are firm in their position about the replay.
According to sources, the Mother City club is instead looking forward to the court matter and is wary that playing the match before May 10 would be a risk, as the result may or may not stand, depending on the court outcome.
According to insiders at the club, the matter puts players at risk for injury or suspension in a match that might not even matter at the end of the day.
