Cape Town - The rained out Absa Premiership clash between AmaZulu and Bloemfontein Celtic is now to be to replayed on January 24, the Premier Soccer League announced.

The original fixture on December 6 was abandoned after 15 minutes at the King Zwelithini Stadium after the pitch became unplayable due to heavy rain.

But rather than starting the clock from the point in which the game was stopped‚ with the score at 0-0‚ the match will be treated as an entirely new one because the PSL rules are clear that in the case of weather interruptions‚ matches must be replayed from scratch.

“The game will be replayed according to Rule 14.20 of the NSL Handbook,” said a PSL statement.

“The Rule reads: 14.20. ‘If a match is postponed or abandoned due to the unsuitability of the ground caused by inclement weather, the state of the pitch or for any other reason, but not because of insufficient illumination from floodlights, the League will set another date on which the match will be played. In such an event all records of an abandoned match will be expunged except that any dismissals that occurred will remain in force’."

It now makes January a hectic one for AmaZulu‚ who have six matches in the month while Celtic will play in five.
