Cape Town - Chippa United coach Roger Sikhakhane has bemoaned the referee's decision not to award his side two penalties in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs.

Bernard Parker's second-half goal proved the difference at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on the day, although Sikhakhane felt his men were deserving of all three points.

He hit out at the referee for what he felt was a failure to award two clear-cut penalties.

"I believe we had Chiefs' measure in this game and would have inflicted the first League defeat of the season on them had we been awarded the two penalties that should have gone our way," Sikhakhane told Sapa.

"I'm still trying to work out how the referee failed to see the infringements by Chiefs players in these two instances that should have gone our way."

The result sees Chippa fall 19 points off the pace of table-topping Chiefs, following a flying start to the Absa Premiership campaign which saw them briefly occupy second place in the league standings.
