Well fight back - Da Gama 17/02/04
Silver Stars will not appeal against the Professional Soccer Leagues decision to dock them points even though they believe they are innocent of any wrong doing.

On Monday the Castle Premiership rookies were deducted three points for fielding a suspended player, Sipho Mchabe, in their 2-0 win over Zulu Royals on February 8.

"Their decision has been made and we won't appeal," a despondent Silver Stars coach Owen Da Gama told SASoccer365.com on Tuesday.

Da Gama said the club had video evidence that proved the referee never showed Mchabe a yellow card in their game against Santos, meaning the player had not picked up the three card which lead to a one-match suspension.

"Sipho was not shown a yellow card in the game against Santos, it's not on any of the officials reports and on the video it's simply not been given, but the PSL have made their decision and we have to move on," said Da Gama.

Da Gama said his players will now have to knuckle down and work even harder to overcome the events of the past few days which has seen The Lions of the North fall from 8th to 11th on the league standings.

"This team has made it through many adversities and the point deduction will just make us hungrier for success, which we believe can be achieved this season."

Stars travel to Johannesburg on Saturday to face Moroka Swallows in a Castle Premiership fixture at the Rand Stadium.
