Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer felt his side should have been awarded a 'clear penalty' against Swallows FC.
The Buccaneers dropped points for a second straight DStv Premiership clash after drawing 1-1 with their Soweto counterparts on Sunday afternoon.
"The first half was a problem with the field," Zinnbauer told SuperSport after the game.
"It's very wet and it's not easy for the players. We normally want more possession when we play at home. With this weather it's not possible. The ball was stopping on the pitch. We had more opportunities.
There was a big moment in the second half when the referee pointed to the penalty spot but after consultation with his assistant, he changed his decision and booked Fortune Makaringe for simulation.
"Clear penalty. Then Hotto in the last five minutes. Never never offside. Then we had another chance for Hotto. It was also unlucky. The weather. He was sliding," he added.
"When you concede in the last minute, it's very disappointing. Swallows are a good team. I think we had to wait for a solution and possibilities to score. What's important is the result at the end of the day.
"The weather is not normal. It was not normal. You have to adapt to this field. I don't know how many times in the season you have such a field. I think it's not a lot of times.
"You have to adapt to this and then you can score. We scored first but we didn't defend enough in this moment and you give the points up."
