HARARE – Caps United players today staged a boycott that led to the abandonment of the Green Machine’s match against How Mine at Luveve Stadium in Bulawayo.

The players, who are believed to be owed March salaries, refused to take to the field after failing to agree with their pay masters over outstanding dues.

\n

When contacted for comment, Caps United officials acknowledged the refusal of players to play the game as a result of a financial dispute.

\n

For the boycott, the Caps United players were allegedly assaulted by Makepekepe fans who appeared to be disgruntled by their players decision not to fulfil today’s fixture.

\n

Reports suggest that all the players except for a few that include Rodrick Mutuma and Leonard Tsipa, hired a kombi for a trip back to Harare, leaving the club’s bus behind.

\n

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) is expected to take action on the aborted match.

If a team fails to fulfil a fixture, a 3-nil scoreline is awarded in favour of the opposition team, meaning that How Mine is likely to be given three crucial  points.
