Johannesburg - Zeca Marques believes the red card that referee Lwandile Mfiki issued debutant Anver Esterhuizen was a game changer.

“It is definitely not a red card, I’ve got people phoning me already, they saw on TV. The TV highlights showed that as well,” said the Moroka Swallows coach.

Ugonna Uzochukwu and David Zulu took advantage of their numerical advantage as they handed Chippa United a 2-0 victory and push the Chilli Boys up to ninth position with seven points in the Absa Premiership standings.

According to KickOff, Marques admitted that his side found it difficult to play with 10-men and understands the fans frustrations after the referee was thrown with objects at half-time and after the game.

“The referee has an important role, they are part and parcel of this game and when they make mistake they must also face the consequences as we all do.”

“We all face consequences.”
