SA Soccer:

JOHANNESBURG - Moroko Swallows head coach Ian Gorowa is off the hook after the South Africa Premier Soccer League suspended for 12 months the R50 000 (about Z$413 billion) fine he incurred for punching Supersport United co

unterpart Gavin Hunt in the league match last week.
But the turn of events have set back the Zimbabwean mentor R10 000 as he was ordered to pay the costs involved in the disciplinary hearing.
“I wish to make it clear that I do not condone unsporting behaviour in any way and as such it is regrettable that there was a minor incident after the game on Saturday, which has been blown out of proportion,” Gorowa said in a statement.
The coach nonetheless shrugged off the setback as he worsened champions Mamelodi Sundowns’ stuttering start to the 2007/08 season in the weekend. The Birds held Sundowns to a goalless draw in Johannesburg on Sunday.
Swallows are now forth on four points while Sundowns, who welcomed back Esrom Nyandoro from injury, are a lowly 13th with a single point from possible six.
Elsewhere, Orlando Pirates coach Bibey Mutombo appears to be skating on thin ice at the club. The unpopular trainer was escorted off the pitch by police after the club stumbled to their second successive draw on Saturday. Ralph Matema’s new club fell to a solitary strike by Bidvest Wits’ Marawam Bantam.
A 1-0 victory was enough for Wilfred Mugeyi and his Ajax Cape Town charges to collect maximum points against Black Leopards while Bekithemba Ndlovu and Tapuwa Kapini were on the receiving end as Platinum Stars fell 1-2 at home to Bloemfontein Celtic.
Kaizer Chiefs and Jomo Cosmos shared the spoils in Durban after a 1-1 draw, a result similar to the Santos and Amazulu duel. Newcomers Free State Stars blunted Golden Arrows 2-0 while Supersport United handed Benoni Premier a 1-0 defeat.
PSL football resumes this weekend with all the clubs in action. – CAJ News
