Johnson Laments Poor Officiating

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 02, 2018 09:05 PM

AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson felt hard done by following the officiating during Friday's 3-1 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns.

After managing to claw their way back level through Mhlengi Cele to head into the break 1-1, Usuthu fell short in the second stanza as Sundowns striker Sibusiso Vilakazi bossed the show with a brace.

Johnson says the official affected the outcome of the game tremendously, particularly with the third goal, which they believed killed off their chances of salvaging something as they presumed it offside.

So vehement were Usuthu's appeals against the decision that the home fans threatened to riot after throwing missiles at the Sundowns bench, and Johnson was equally angered by the decision.

“It’s hard because I thought we had a penalty shout in the first half. We could have been one up before they scored and then I thought both teams at 1-1 came at each other and of course the second goal (killed us)," Johnson told SuperSport after the game.

“But you have got to give credit for their quality. Then the man in the middle spoils the game. Not only for me, but for the spectators that paid their good money to watch the game.

“Then after that the game just went through the window. We tried to go through the window, press them a bit hard and I thought we could have scored from the one or two chances we had but we were not clinical enough to get a goal."
