Cape Town - Orlando Pirates have once again hit out at the standard of refereeing in the Premiership following the club's 1-1 draw with Baroka in the Premiership on Wednesday.

Bakgaga goalkeeper Masuluke Oscarine snatched a draw for the home side with a bicycle kick at the death, despite the fact that it happened beyond the five minutes of allotted injury time.

It is the second time in as many matches that Bucs have expressed dissatisfaction with the officiating.

Interim coach Augusto Palacios alleged that in Pirates' 1-0 defeat to SuperSport United in the Telkom Knockout semi-final, the officials failed to punish Matsatsantsa's time-wasting antics.

The Peruvian also revealed his unhappiness with the nature of Oscarine's equaliser on Wednesday. He told reporters: "I don't want to criticise the referee but I think the laws of the game should be respected.

"If the added time is five minutes, then stick to five minutes because the goal was scored in the 96th minute.
