In a statement on Monday the PSL said: "The Disciplinary Committee found Highlanders not guilty of causing the abandonment of their match against FC Platinum. 

They were, however, found guilty of throwing missiles on the pitch and were fined the sum of $2000, $500 of which has been suspended for the rest of the season on condition the club is not convicted of a similar offence.”

The fine of $1500 together with the costs of hearing shall be paid by the 31st of July 2017. Further, the Disciplinary Committee ruled that the score line stands at 1-1.
