The match authorities responsible for the problematic punishment option in the match between AmaZulu and Kaizer Chiefs have been rebuffed, according to significant level sources, after the audit council convened this week.
The SAFA Referees Review Committee is thought to have temporarily suspended Jam Chavani for altering the outcome of the game, with Usuthu well in control of each of the three focuses in their DStv Premiership clash against Amakhosi on Saturday.
When the ball hoped to have landed off protector Tapelo Xoki's mind, not his arm, Chavani, the official in charge, blew his whistle for a spot kick with Benni McCarthy's side leading 1-0 in extended time.
The decision was not made quickly; it was only seconds after Chavani spoke with the fourth authority, Moeketsi Molelekoa, that he halted play and handed the punishment to the Chiefs, which was then changed over by Keagan Dolly to give them a piece of the crown jewels.
