Cape Town - Eskom on Wednesday confirmed that the "light failure" during the SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates was not due to load shedding.
"Eskom is pleased to note that the Premium Soccer League has corrected initial media reports that had suggested that load shedding was responsible for the postponement of last night’s match between SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane," read the statement.
"The power system has been constrained but stable since last Sunday, resulting in Eskom not having to implement load shedding since then.
"The PSL has established a technical fault at the stadium had led to insufficient illumination from the floodlights.
"In its twitter message last night, the PSL said: “Match temporarily suspended due to a technical error with the floodlights…”
Matsatsansta managed to protect their overnight 1-0 advantage courtesy of Michael Boxall and walked away with maximum points against Pirates on Wednesday.
