Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) Disciplinary committee has charged Amazulu after their Absa Premiership fixture against Mamelodi Sundowns was halted due to crowd trouble.

A section of fans at the King Zwelithini Stadium started throwing objects onto the field in reaction to the referee's assistant failing to flag offside for Sundown's third goal.

The PSL said in a statement: The Premier Soccer League Disciplinary Committee has charged AmaZulu FC for contravening the Safety and Security Manual (Compliance Manual) during their Absa Premiership fixture against Mamelodi Sundowns on Friday night, March 2 2018.

This is after a section of supporters at the King Zwelithini Stadium started to throw objects on the field resulting in the game being stopped for about 10 minutes by the referee.

AmaZulu will also face a charge of failing to provide adequate security personnel at their game as required by the Compliance Manual.

They will appear on March 14 2018.

In a 3-1 win to Masandawana things took a turn for the worst on the hour mark when a controversial third goal from Sibusiso Vilakazi sparked outrage from the home support, which led to a hold-up in proceedings.

Morton gave away possession in his own half and Tau sent Zwane clean through on goal, although the winger appeared to be well offside. His shot hit the right post but Vilakazi followed up to score from six yards out.

The Sundowns bench was pounded by debris from the stands and play was halted when the substitutions and coaching staff made their way onto the field.
