Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas says bad officiating is bad for the local game.He made the sentiments soon after his charges suffered a 1-2 home defeat at the hands of CAPS United on Wednesday.
The referee of the afternoon Nkosana Nduna awarded a dubious penalty to Makepekepe which was converted by Joel “Josta” Ngodzo in the sixth minute.
“I don’t want to take away the gloss off the Caps United win but the referee was a circus. Referees come to matches with their agendas. It’s happening everywhere. This is not how football should be played. It’s killing the game and if only they could improve the game will develop,” said Antipas.
Nduna’s decision was questioned by many who were watching the match and it later affected the Gamecocks’ playing rhythm.
