New Matsatsantsa signing Michael Boxall opened the scoring midway through the first half by converting a free-kick by David Mathebula, who went off injured shortly before the break.

However, play was halted on 63 minutes when the lights went out.

The match commissioner waited for over an hour before announcing the game would not continue.

The PSL later confirmed the remaining 27 minutes of the clash will be played at the same venue on Wednesday, starting at 12h00.

According to PSL rule 5.7: ' Should a match be abandoned by the Referee due to insufficient illumination from the floodlights, then the remaining minutes of the match will be resumed on a date and time agreed upon between the two participating clubs immediately upon the abandonment of the match.

'The date and time will be within forty-eight (48) hours of the abandonment of the match, subject to the approval of the Chief Executive Officer of the League or a delegated Official of the League who may set an alternative date and time.'
