The KPL decided to replay the fixture on September 18 at a neutral venue.
The abandoned Kenyan Premier League Match between Sony Sugar and Gor Mahia has been rescheduled.
Sunday’s bout had to be suspended in the 85nd minute by referee Nasur Doka after Sony players contested the goal from defender David ‘Calabar’ Owino, that would have drawn the visitors level at 2-2, as they felt it hadn’t crossed the line.
It led to home supporters flooding onto the Awendo Green Stadium pitch in protest and it was agreed that the game would not restart after the pitch invasion left the players’ safety and security at risk.
KPL chief executive Jack Oguda now says the governing body has decided the fixture will be replayed on September 18 at a neutral venue, believed to be the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru.
“After reading through the match report it has been decided the Sony/Gor match will be replayed at the Afraha Stadium,” he told SuperSport.
“The report was clear that the match could not go on because the perimeter fence had been brought down and that would have been a risk to the player and officials.”
Gor Mahia remain the league leaders with 41 points ahead of fellow title challengers Sofapaka and Thika United.
