THE Premier Soccer League has announced Highlanders’ clash with Dynamos set for Barbourfields on Wednesday has been postponed.
The League, already struggling with a fixture back-log, cited “logistical reasons” for the postponement.
The fixture was originally scheduled to be played on April 29, but was pushed back due to Dynamos’ African Champions League commitments.
In a statement on Monday, the League’s secretary general Kennedy Ndebele said: “This serves to advise that the Castle Lager PSL match scheduled for Wednesday, June 13, 2012, has been postponed.
“We will advise of the new dates in due course. The fixture has been postponed due to logistical reasons.”
The domestic action resumed last weekend after a two-week break to pave way for Benjani Mwaruwari’s testimonial and national team fixtures.
Zimbabwe play Burundi in Harare on Sunday, and the PSL has decided staging Wednesday’s match could be disruptive – particularly to Dynamos who have several players on national team duty.
Dynamos have two games in hand over the other teams that have played 10 matches each, with outstanding fixtures against Highlanders and Harare City.
The champions have also been ordered to replay the match with Hwange. They beat the coal-miners 4-2 at Rufaro – but the visitors had to play without their coaches who were assaulted by Dynamos marshals.
The league faces further disruption with the BancABC Sup8r fixtures penciled for early July.
July will also see a local squad of players taking part in the COSAFA Senior Men’s Challenge in Malawi, followed soon after by the 16-team knock-out Mbada Diamonds Cup.
Should Zimbabwe progress further in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, they will be in action-over two legs in September.
