Due to an outbreak of Covid-19 at Naturena in December, Kaizer Chiefs sought to have all five of their scheduled league fixtures postponed.
Amakhosi failed to show up for the first two of those matches against Cape Town City FC (home) and Golden Arrows (away) before the PSL could make a ruling on their request.

The Soweto giants then returned to play their three final matches last month against Sekhukhune United, Royal AM and Maritzburg United.
The PSL eventually ruled against Kaizer Chiefs’ request to postpone the two matches they missed.
Ahead of facing the PSL Disciplinary Committee on Friday, the PSL referred the matter to SAFA’s arbitration – as confirmed by the league’s prosecutor Zola Majavu.
The matter is now set to be heard today at 16:00.
Hopefully the matter is resolved as soon as possible to avoid farcical scenes at the end of the season.

As things currently stand, Kaizer Chiefs lie fourth in the DStv Premiership log with 28 points after 16 matches.
That sees them 16 points adrift of log-leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, but having played three fewer matches.
Kaizer Chiefs will next be in action on 15 February
However, if Kaizer Chiefs are forced to forfeit the two matches they missed, they’ll only have a single match in hand over Masandawana.
Kaizer Chiefs will next be in action away at Cape Town City FC on Tuesday, 15 February at 17:00.
