CAPE TOWN - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) returns tonight after games were postponed out of respect for Senzo Meyiwa.

The Orlando Pirates goalkeeper was murdered last week Sunday and the league decided to postpone all the weekend games as a mark of respect.

Clive Barker's Mpumalanga Black Aces are away to Mamelodi Sundowns.

Barker says no team has more of advantage having not played last week.

"I think like everybody else, they would have got some friendly matches, we had one last Wednesday, we were happy to have that. I think we will all make the adjustments. I think everybody suffered and everybody who could get there went to the funeral."

SuperSport United face coach Gordon Igesund's former team Moroka Swallows.

Igesund says it has not been an easy time for any team after Meyiwa's death.

"It's been a difficult time for everybody, for all teams considered especially Orlando Pirates, but it is behind us now. We have been working very very hard and are looking forward to the match against Moroka Swallows."

However, Pirates will not be playing as their game with Platinum Stars was also postponed.

Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to keep their unbeaten run going when they take on Amazulu in Durban while Ajax Cape Town travel to Tuks.

The Urban Warriors will be keen to bounce back after two defeats in a row in a bid to close the gap on leaders Chiefs.
