DC rejects Pirates request

Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League's Disciplinary Committee have rejected Orlando Pirates' request to postpone the case relating to charges of spectator misbehaviour against the treble champions.

The Buccaneers appeared before the panel on Thursday to answer two charges relating to the poor behaviour of some of their fans during the MTN8 semi-final second-leg defeat to Moroka Swallows in August, as well as during an earlier PSL encounter.

The Sea Robbers had requested the case be postponed in order for the club to attend to a third charge of spectator misbehaviour, relating to last year's Telkom Knockout final, although the DC opposed Pirates' application.

The case has since been adjourned to "allow the League time to prepare submission documents to oppose the postponement".

The Wafa Wafa incident, which saw the Ghost storm the field following the final whistle, is set to activate a suspended fine of R250 000.
