The tragic accident on the N1 that has claimed 28 lives in Limpopo has also affected the Telkom Knockout clash between Baroka FC and Golden Arrows.

The match was scheduled to take place at 3.30pm on Saturday, but kickoff has now been moved to 8.15pm at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

The Premier Soccer League announced on Saturday morning that Arrows were delayed on the N1 following the bus accident between Kranskop and Modimolle on Friday.

The PSL said that Arrows only arrived at their hotel in Polokwane on Saturday morning after the marathon trip from Durban.

The rest of the Telkom Knockout fixtures remain the same.
