Komphela Questions Referee's Decisions

Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela took issue with some of the referee's decisions during his side's 0-0 draw with AmaZulu.
 
 
Chiefs failed to secure victory for the third successive game in the Absa Premiership after they were held to a goalless draw on Wednesday evening.
 
“We would have preferred the three points tonight,” Komphela told SuperSport after the game.
 
“There is nothing you can do. I thought both sets of players had a good game. It wasn’t an easy match to watch.
 
“Most of the time when we enter matches of this calibre we normally say to the ref we must be careful, the surface is slippery and sometimes the ball skies or the players look like they are going hard into tackle. I was just afraid of that.
 
“We should just be on the same level. Sometimes it spoils the game.
 
“I thought there should have been a red card for the tackle on (Bernard) Parker even though I don’t prefer to talk about the ref’s business.”
 
Looking at his side’s performance on the night the Chiefs coach did not feel AmaZulu were very threatening despite winning a penalty, but he did commend AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson for his tactics.
 
“As much as they miss a penalty and they have a few threatening moments, I thought we could have won it as well,” added Komphela.
 
“There is one moment where (Siphiwe) Shabalala went through last minute, and there were moments where I thought we could have broken the line but from the tactical approach I thought Cavin (Johnson) did well.
 
“They were looking to press us so that we couldn’t play and under the conditions their pressing did work, so all that we needed to do was to break the first line of pressing. Then we would be on.
 
“We did it once when Parker broke through with Philani Zulu, but unfortunately we needed to be more consistent.
 
“We would have preferred three points. We have to try get into the box and have a shot and if they are not coming we have to generate them.”
