THE Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) is today set to rule on the incident in which urine-like substance was thrown at army side Buffaloes’ goal during the PSL tie against Harare giants Caps United at Gwanzura Stadium last Sunday.

PSL boss Kenny Ndebele said yesterday they had received a report on the incident from the referee and the match commissioner.

“We have been waiting for a report from the match official and we have now received it. We are now studying it and will state our position tomorrow (Thursday). Whoever will be found guilty will be called to a disciplinary hearing,” he said.

Buffaloes coach Luke Masomere and his players could not take their seats when the second half resumed at Gwanzura on Sunday as he claimed the seats had been soiled by the Caps United players.

The referee had to remove a plastic bottle containing a substance which looked like urine which was thrown at the visitors’ goal area by unruly supporters who felt Buffaloes were using juju on their goal area to prevent Caps United from scoring.

The match which finished goalless was beamed live on Supersport.

The top-flight league management has described the incident as embarrassing and a bad advertisement for the game and challenged the players and supporters to uphold the true spirit of football.

Meanwhile, Caps United travel to Mandava Stadium in Zvishavane on Saturday to face FC Platinum while Dynamos who recovered from a defeat by FC Platinum who beat them to the Independence trophy when they dismissed Bantu Rovers on Easter Monday, face troubled Harare City.

Harare City also known as the Sunshine City Boys, had a disastrous start to the 2014 PSL campaign after suffering three successive defeats which have left them at the foot of the table.

Reports suggest the team is being sabotaged by a member of the executive who is unhappy that coach Bigboy Mawiwi did not retain Godfrey Nguwodzawo and Edgar Tapera.

The City executive was yesterday scheduled to meet to review the situation which if unchecked could plunge the team into an irretrievable nose dive.

Elsewhere, log leaders Highlanders will host Hwange at Barbourfields Stadium. How Mine will take to the field first for a clash against Shabanie Mine on Friday.

Fixtures: Friday: How Mine v Shabanie,

Saturday, FC Platinum v Caps United, Black Rhinos v Chiredzi FC, Bantu Rovers v Chapungu

Sunday: Highlanders v Hwange, Triangle v Chicken Inn, Dynamos v Harare City, Buffaloes v ZPC Kariba
