Johannesburg - The PSL has refused to comment on the protest that was lodged by Orlando Pirates in their game against Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday evening, that led to the game being delayed for several minutes.

Soccer-Laduma reports, the match, which was scheduled to commence at 19:30, was delayed after Pirates lodged a protest against Sundowns regarding their captain and defender, Alje Schut’s playing card.

Speaking after the match, Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, said something "fishy" was going on and his side never had any chance of winning the game.

“I don’t believe we could have won this match. First, I find it very, very strange that Orlando Pirates go to Alje Schut’s card, that is within our books, how do they know that, straight to Alje’s card, no one else, please man,” said Mosimane.

Asked for clarity on the issue, PSL Communications’ Connie Motshumi said the league was not in a position to comment on the matter.

“We’re waiting for the match report, so we can’t comment on the matter. I saw the incident on TV just like you, so I can’t comment on that until I get the report,” said Motshumi.

Pirates won the match 3-0, with Kermit Erasmus scoring a brace and Lehlohonolo Majoro scoring the third goal.
