Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane believes his team were unlucky to lose 0-1 to Sekhukhune United at FNB Stadium on Saturday night.
Kaizer Chiefs coach not thrilled with referee
Zwane lamented being denied a penalty.
The coach felt his team should have had a spot-kick.
He felt his team made more of the play.
“We were actually on the front foot as well just after introducing ‘Ash’ (Ashley Du Preez) and the young Mduduzi (Shabalala), Sekgota as well, we wanted to put them under pressure and force them to make mistakes,” Zwane told SuperSport.

“And we did force them to make mistakes we were just unfortunate and I believe one, there was a penalty there when Caleb (Bimenyimana) was charging towards the ball and he was pulled.
“Unfortunately, the referee did not see it and it’s one of those things. I think the boys tried, against the run of play we conceded we shouldn’t have because it was from out mistake again,” he added.
Bumpy FNB has Zwane in a spin
While Zwane couldn’t fault his player’s effort he was less pleased with the preparation of the ground.
“Ja look, I think we started a bit sluggish, we gained momentum, had control of the game though we played in patches, we created quite a few chances first half we could capitalise on, we couldn’t take them,” Zwane said after the shock loss..
“Second half, when you look at the way we conceded again, sometimes these things when they happen you ask yourself questions.
“But I can’t fault the boys, the effort, when you look at them, the pitch also didn’t make our lives easy, it was a bit soft and bumpy but when you look at the number of chances that we created, we could have maybe buried them, unfortunately today it wasn’t to be.”
