Cape Town - Highlands Park have been fined by the Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee for failing to provide adequate security for their Absa Premiership clash against Kaizer Chiefs which resulted in fans misbehaving and throwing objects.

"The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee has found Highlands Park guilty of contravening the NSL Security Manual during their Absa Premiership fixture against Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday, August 4, 2019," the statement read.

The Lions of the North have been fined R200 000 of which R150 000 have been suspended for 24 months.

If the Johannesburg club are found guilty of a similar offence in the next two years, the full amount will be due.

Highlands Park will also have to pay the cost of the Disciplinary Committee sitting which amounts to R35 543.65.

The Johannesburg side are back in action on Tuesday when they welcome AmaZulu to Balfour Park Stadium.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
