Cape Town - AmaZulu will not complain to the Premier Soccer League (PSL) about the match officials who handled their match against Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday.

Usuthu suffered a 2-0 defeat with Chiefs scoring two late goals in the game at the King Zwelithini Stadium but the hosts will feel hard by as they had two strikes ruled out because of questionable calls.

The defeat against Amakhosi means AmaZulu's winless streak in the current campaign stretches to six matches.

Usuthu team manager Qedi Dlamini said even they found the loss tough to take, the club will not make a formal complaint to the PSL about the match officials.

Dlamini said: "I don't think it's something that we can say we are taking to the league and complain about.

"The basic rule is that the referee’s decision is final. There's never been any decision that has ever been overturned from a result of a match.

"Yes, we are not feeling happy, but, of course as the club, we respect the rules.

"We, as the club, respect the match officials and we feel that maybe on their part there will be a need for some improvement with some of the decisions.

"We are bitter but there's nothing we can do about it. The result of the match is that we lost."

AmaZulu are next in action against SuperSport United on Saturday, September 25.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
