Highlands Park coach Allan Freese has bemoaned the officiating in his side’s two opening Absa Premiership matches.
In both his side’s opening two fixtures the referee in charge awarded penalties to their opposition and while it did not bear any fruit in their first game, it cost Highlands in their second game.
A George Lebese penalty goal saw Highlands suffer their first loss in the league after going down 1-0 to Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday night.
“How are teams beating us? Two games, two penalties – let’s leave it at that,” said Freese before touching on his side’s showing against the Amakhosi.
“Chiefs started better in the second half, but we also had opportunities (to score), not clear-cut ones but we did have opportunities.
“It is back to the drawing board for us now.
“We still have another game on Saturday against Polokwane, it is still early in the league.
“The boys tried, but we will come back again.”
