Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was not pleased with the officiating in his side’s 2-2 draw against Baroka FC Wednesday night.

The Brazilians took the lead in the first half before Baroka fought to level the score before the 90 minutes were up.

Bakgaga were awarded a penalty in the referee’s optional time to secure a draw.

It was unclear if Thapelo Morena was inside the box when he handled the ball that led to the penalty.

“I don’t know if it was a penalty, I can’t see from where I am [during the game]. I don’t know if it was inside the box or outside the box – it’s very difficult for us to see. For me, it looks outside the box, but it’s ok, it’s football.

“And I’m not sure [the] added six minutes [of second-half injury time], but it’s ok.

“I’m not saying we [drew] because of the six minutes, it’s part of football, it’s part of the game and you have to continue. It’s very sad, but I hope the referee made a mistake [and wasn’t biased], otherwise it’s very sad.”
