Cape Town - AmaZulu's relegation from the PSL is far from finished business after reports have revealed that the club is taking to the the courts to prevent the PSL playoffs from beginning on Sunday.
On Friday, Kickoff.com report that an undisclosed source has told the website that an urgent court application has been launched by AmaZulu.
The Durban-based club reportedly is requesting that the High Court suspended the PSL play-offs until the PSL has concluded the investigation into the match-fixing allegations.
Earlier in the week, reports surfaced that a PSL club has lodged an official complaint relating to alleged match-fixing.
The match-fixing claims surround the PSL's relegation battle which saw AmaZulu relegated on the final day of fixtures while Moroka Swallows, who finished second-last, have a chance to remain in the PSL by winning the play-offs involving NFD sides Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos.
The initial reports of the claims of match-fixing were confirmed by the PSL’s CEO, Brand de Villiers.
De Villiers said the league's authorities are taking the matter seriously and that the matter has been directed to attention the PSL's EXCO and the matter has been handed over to the prosecutors.
“The prosecutors are independent from the PSL and, as standard procedure, they will investigate if there is a case or not. If there is, a case will be opened,” said De Villiers, earlier in the week.
The PSL Promotion play-off fixtures are currently due to begin on Sunday when Black Leopards host Jomo Cosmos at the Thohoyandou Stadium.
