Bloemfontein Celtic have been charged by the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee for failing to give SuperSport United access to their change rooms four hours prior their recent league encounter.
According to the league’s rules, it is mandatory for the home team to grant access to the dressing rooms for the visiting side four hours before the game, in order to assist with their preparations. However, it seems Ernst Middendorp’s side failed to do that when Matsatsantsa a Pitori visited them at Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium on 16 March.
The league has revealed that Celtic were sentenced to a fine of R30 000, which is suspended for the remainder of the season, and ordered to pay their share of the costs of the sitting.
This will be considered a minor setback for Phunya Sele Sele, whose focus is on tonight’s match against Golden Arrows at King Zwelithini Stadium. A win for Celtic will see them consolidate their place inside the top eight bracket, with their remaining fixtures of the season all being played at home.
