“Our charges from now until the end of the season are $3 because we have already played all the big teams, Dynamos, Highlanders and Caps United,’’ Hara said.

The match was an opportunity for Chicken Inn to record their sixth win of the season while for FC Platinum it was a chance to overtake Highlanders and go on top of the log. FC Platinum are on 26 points, the same number as Highlanders with the former champions still on top because of a better goal difference.

The match was in fact rescheduled from last month when Chicken Inn their players away with the national team at the Cosafa Cup in Namibia and it means that the PSL has to rearrange it again on another date.
