SuperSport United coach Gordon Igesund bemoaned some poor officiating in his side’s 4-1 loss to Kaizer Chiefs in an Absa Premiership match on Saturday night.
“I am disappointed for a number of reasons,” said Igesund.
“We saw a fantastic goal, but we also should have had a penalty – there is no doubt in my mind Kingston Nkhatha was brought down inside the box (in the 19th minute), that is a penalty and the second goal, but it was not given and things like that kill the game.
“I’m sticking my neck out now and asked the player and they all confirmed that the foul was inside the box.
“Then you get down to ten men (after the Dean Furman sending off) and when you are 2-1 down you want to try and get something out of the game and you push players forward and there was always a risk they would score more goals.
“I was very disappointed with the first goal we conceded, it was a lack of experience and that brought them back into the game.
“We will bounce back, 4-1, it wasn’t a true reflection of the game.
“We should have been 2-0 up, but what can you say about that. At the end of the day we didn’t win the game.”
