Highlanders authorities have urged the clubs legion of passionate supporters to 'ignore' stadium ban imposed by Premier Soccer League and throng Barbourfields on Sunday.

On Thursday, the PSL ordered title chasing Bosso to play its next home match in an empty stadium.

It's a punishment for crowd trouble that occurred in a match against Chicken Inn.

However, chief executive officer Ndumiso Gumede has said the club will appeal the harsh judgment.

"We have some technical challenges at the office, but I got wind of the ruling.

"Chances are we are going to appeal. We don't understand how they have arrived at that decision when we came up with that kind of defence," he said.

He then made the appeal.

"Once we have lodged an appeal its back to the status quo.

"In the judgment, they state that a similar case has been done before, and I think they are referring to the Dynamos decision which hasn't been effected.

"Actually, as it is, we are preparing for Sundays' game and we expect a bumper crowd".

Highlanders is at home against city neighbours Bulawayo City.
