Cape Town - SuperSport United head coach Cavin Johnson was left fuming at the match officials following his side’s defeat to reigning Premiership champions and log leaders, Kaizer Chiefs, on Wednesday night.

Chiefs won the mouth-watering clash 1-0 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane courtesy of a Bernard Parker strike.

In a televised post-match interview, the former Platinum Stars mentor criticised the referee, stating that the match officials are still lacking professionalism after his midfielder, Innocent Mkhabela, was shown a red card towards the end of the game.

The 55-year-old tactician also hailed his side for a fantastic performance displayed on the night and claimed luck was not on their side.

“It was one of our best games of the season against the leaders and it’s just unlucky we didn’t score,” said Johnson.

“I think we were the better team in both halves and the goal we conceded was just a soft free-kick.”

“You have to look at the referee and people in the middle; they need to be more professional because we want to play a good game of football.

“I don’t know why my player was sent off in the end, that’s shocking.

“For me it’s not professionalism from the referee,” he added.

A defeat meant that the Pretoria-based outfit was left trailing the champions by 13 points and left occupying fourth spot after 17 games.

Johnson and his charges will face Mpumalanga Black Aces in their next league instalment at the Lucas Moripe Stadium next Wednesday.
