Cape Town - The Absa Premiership clash between Kaizer Chiefs and Baroka FC was marred in controversy regarding attacker Siphiwe Tshabalala's goal in a 1-1 draw at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday.
Chiefs found themselves behind after a terrible mix-up between Daniel Cardoso and goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune that resulted in the defender putting the ball in the back of his own net.
The Soweto giants levelled matters in the 43rd minute with a goal awarded to Tshabalala after his direct free-kick was adjudged to have crossed the line.
Should the goal have been awarded?
Video replays though showed that it was a very tight call to award the goal with fans claiming that the entire circumference of the ball had not crossed the line.
If the referee got the call wrong the goal should not have stood after Siyabonga Ngezana headed in the rebound from an offside position.
Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Darren Keet was adamant that the referee's got the call wrong leading to much debate with the Amakhosi faithful on Twitter.
This again proves that SAFA should seriously consider implementing goal-line technology and the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system in South Africa's top-flight with the poor standard of officiating needing all the help it can get.
