Cape Town City chairman John Comitis has responded to news of Mpho Makola's suspension and is considering an appeal.

Makola has been handed a six-month ban by the PSL Disciplinary Committee after being found guilty of assaulting referee Abongile Tom during the Telkom Knockout fixture against Kaizer Chiefs at Cape Town Stadium on 19 October.

"Yes I did see that and I was part of that thing [DC hearing] yesterday," Comitis tells KickOff.com.

"The hearing was yesterday. We are having a meeting this afternoon and we'll make an official comment later. We've got no comment on that at the moment.

"We will be meeting the management here, the coach [Jan Olde Riekerink], to discuss what our take on this matter is."
