CAPS United's troubles are set to continue as they could face sanctions from the Premier Soccer League (PSL) for the unruly behaviour of a section of their fans.

The supporters reacted angrily as their team stuttered to a 0-0 draw against visiting How Mine at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.

PSL chief executive Kenny Ndebele said the league management was still waiting for a report from the referee and the match commissioner after which a decision will be made.

“We are still waiting for a report from the referee and the match commissioner after which the league's disciplinary committee sit down and take a position on the issue," said Ndebele.

There was trouble after the match as a section of the team supporters, frustrated as the team wasted a glut of chances against How Mine rained missiles and hurled insults at coach Taurai Mangwiro after the match.

The coach was accused him of being sympathetic to Dynamos - the club he featured for during his playing career.

The angry fans fought running battles with the police as they attempted to prevent the team bus from leaving the stadium while the club’s security personnel had to whisk away Mangwiro as the supporters demanded his resignation.

Rivals Dynamos had earlier been held to a 0-0 draw by FC Platinum and Caps United had the opportunity to close in on their opponents at the top - Dynamos, ZPC Kariba and Highlanders.

But the draw left them static on fourth position on the league table with 39 points — four adrift of leaders Dynamos.

ZPC Kariba claimed second spot with 41 points after overcoming Black Rhinos 2-1 while Highlanders settled for third position following a shock 1-0 defeat to Harare City at home.

This is not the first time Caps United have been involved in incidents violating the PSL rules and regulations this season.

The Harare giants and their player star Hardlife Zvirekwi were found guilty of pouring urine on the Buffaloes bench during a contentious Castle Premiership match at Gwanzura Stadium back in April.

Zvirekwi was ordered to pay $2,500 fine of which $500 was suspended for the rest of the season on condition he is not convicted of any offence.
