Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer hit out at the standard of officiating after a number of wrong calls by the referee as his side were held to a 1-1 draw by Swallows FC at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.
Ben Motshwari scored in the 85th minute but his effort was cancelled out as Swallows grabbed an equaliser in the 93rd minute in stoppage time to deny the hosts.
The game was clouded in controversy as a number of contentious decisions by the officials saw Deon Hotto's appeals for a penalty denied despite TV replays showing that there was clear contact in the area.
Hotto was also adjudged to have been offside denying Pirates yet again.
A visibly disappointed Zinnbauer post-match shared his disappointment while hitting out at the decisions by the officials.
"We had more opportunities to score and for me it was a clear, clear penalty," Zinnbauer told SuperSport TV. We then had a decision against Hotto too with the offside call which was never, never offside.
"Then we had another chance for Hotto which was maybe a bit unlucky due to the wet weather causing him to lose his footing.
The German added that he usually would expect to clinch all three points having scored so late into the game but rued his side's inability to hang onto their important lead.
Pirates next face Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in an away league clash on Wednesday where they will be aiming to get back to winning ways.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
