Golden Arrows coach Mark Harrison has bemoaned the penalty decision that gave Kaizer Chiefs a 1-0 win over his side in an Absa Premiership league match at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Thursday night.
Mzuvukile Tom handled the ball inside the box two minutes into the second half and Bernard Parker converted from the spot to hand Chiefs the win.
Speaking after the match, Harrison was openly unhappy with the refereeing decision that saw his side lose the match.
“We have been done up again, we have been done up, the penalty decision was scandalous,” said Harrison.
The Arrows coach, though, was pleased by his side’s showing despite losing.
“I thought we were good tonight, our commitment levels were top class and that is the way we need to be in the future,” added Harrison.
“I am pleased (with their overall performance), we have been in Chiefs’ face tonight, we’ve given everything, we created chances and we should have got a result tonight.”
The loss sees Arrows rooted to the bottom of the Absa Premiership table with ten points from 14 games, and ‘Man of the Match’ Siyanda Zwane admits it is disappointing.
“We are very disappointed with the result today,” said Zwane.
“Credit to my teammates, though, because we fought from the very first minute of the game.
“We gave our all today, but sometimes things just don’t work out the way you plan.
“It is very, very bad. We don’t even want to look at the log table because we all believe we could have done something to avoid our position on the log table.
“We need to keep working hard and take each game as it comes, and play it as a cup final.
“We just need to keep on going.”
