PSL Give Downs Major TKO Final Boost

Pitso Mosimane had expected the Premier Soccer League to move Mamelodi Sundowns’ Absa Premiership fixture away to Stellenbosch FC on December 11 – just three days before they face Maritzburg United in the final of the Telkom Knockout in Durban and that is exactly what has happened.

It was a fair assumption, given that there are generally no matches scheduled on the week of domestic cup games and the league has previously postponed fixtures of the two teams involved in a final just days prior. 

“I think the league will move that game, otherwise it would be the first time you see a cup final played and the team that plays that cup final plays midweek,” Mosimane said, probably aware that Maritzburg will have six days to rest before the two teams clash in the TKO final.

“It will be the first time in the history of the PSL. So I would like to remain positive. I think the PSL will move the game.” 

The PSL has sinced amended it's fixture list and indicated that the match away in Cape Town has been postponed. This means talisman Gaston Sirino will miss the club’s first domestic cup final since October 2016 because of suspension after he was red carded in the semi-final match away to Golden Arrows on Saturday afternoon.

“It’s a thorn in the flesh, but what can you do. But I believe they will move the game,” Mosimane had said after Downs' 1-0 victory over AmaZulu on Tuesday night.
