In an embarrassment for the Premier Soccer League, the top flight clash between AmaZulu and Marumo Gallants had to be called off due to a clash in kit colours.

DURBAN – In embarrassing circumstances, the DStv Premiership game between AmaZulu and Marumo Gallants was called on Wednesday off due to a similarity in kit colour between the two teams.

The game started at the King Zwelethini Stadium but just went to the 15th minute before play was halted.

Usuthu exercised their right to refuse to use their away kit as they were the home side and it appeared that Gallants did not bring an away kit to the game.

It also appeared that there were problems with the lighting at the King Zwelethini Stadium which could have posed problems had the game needed to be played under lighting.

However, it was decided to reschedule the game which will now be played on Thursday (kickoff at 3.30pm).
