Sekhukhune must forget about referee’s blunder and focus on City

Sekhukhune United will have to get over the shocking refereeing decision that resulted in them losing three points against Moroka Swallows.

Ba Bina Noko face Cape Town City in a DStv Premiership match at the Athlone Stadium on Wednesday afternoon. Kick-off is at 7.30pm.

Last Wednesday, Sekhukhune were cheated by referee Siyabonga Nkomo and his linesman when they allowed a dodgy Swallows goal to stand in injury time.

Swallows substitute Gabadinho Mhango pushed Sekhukhune goalkeeper into the net with the ball still in his hands.

The referee signaled for a goal, drawing a hostile reaction from the Sekhukhune bench.

Ugly scenes and chaos followed when irate Sekhukhune officials and some players confronted the referee, who was rescued by security guards and senior players.

Nkomo has since been suspended by the SA Football Association for his blunder and is expected to be out of action for 16 weeks.

Meanwhile, Cape Town City have had a rather bright start to the season.

They opened their campaign with wins against Polokwane City and Swallows but suffered a narrow 1-0 loss to SuperSport United on Friday last week.

They are lying on position six with the same number of points after three rounds of matches, and will want their good run of form to continue against the frustrated visitors.

The Limpopo side, who are coached by Brendon Truter, will be hoping that their Nigerian goalscoring machine Chibuike Ohizo continues banging the net.

Ohizo is the league’s leading scorer with two goals so far in the campaign and a lot will be expected from him as the season progresses.
