The Brazilians resumed Absa Premiership action with a 2-1 victory away to Leopards to move up to third spot in the standings.

Despite walking away with the spoils, Mosimane felt his side should have been awarded a penalty in the first half for a handball an Kaizer Chiefs' were awarded a penalty for the same offence on Tuesday evening.

"You know they always come back late here, I knew that they would put us under a lot of stress hence my substitutes, I put Lyle [Lakay] and [Tebogo] Langerman on one side, because [Khuliso] Mudau is coming. I put Thapelo [Morena] and Anele [Ngongca] on the right side because [Pentjie] Zulu is coming. So I put my two right backs as wingers because we have a problem of overlaps," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game,
 
"What a good goal by [Mwape] Musonda, he's a prolific striker, he doesn't have to wait a little bit, he just hit it at once. He's a top striker. But I think we should have got a penalty, the new rule says when your hand is up in the box you must blow. The referee chickened-out, he's going with the old rules. I've suffered twice
 
"When it's [Kaizer] Chiefs, it's always a penalty, it was a penalty [for] Chiefs yesterday. I must get a penalty also, I must benefit. Chiefs is benefitting from the mistakes of referees, it's not about Chiefs, I'm highlighting the realities. It is true, no matter what.
 
"I will talk even if we lose. But the referee was not bad. We had to manage the game, just manage it until it finishes, we can't allow from 2-0 [up] and then we lose the match? No, no. We can't allow it. I had to kill it, increase the midfield. That's whay I put Sammy Seabi to help 'AJ' [Andile Jali], the rest is just hype, hype and the game will finish, we know that," he said.
