Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Rhulani Mokwena insists he did not see if his team's controversial goal in the 1-0 win over Highlands Park on Tuesday was offside.
MUST READ: Absa Premiership officially has a referee crisis!
The Buccaneers were desperate for a win in the Premiership clash in Tembisa after going three league games without a three-pointer and they were delighted when Tshegofatso Mabaso found the back of the net late in the game.
However, Highlands boss Owen da Gama was convinced that the goal was 'three metres' offside and should never have stood.
Mokwena has responded to Da Gama's claim but added that he did no, in fact, see how the goal happened.
"No comment. I haven't seen it yet," said Mokwena after being asked about the controversial strike as quoted by KickOff.
"I think things even themselves out at the end of the season. It's unfortunate for Owen (Da Gama) but I haven't seen it yet so I can't comment.
"No comment on the nature of the goal. Look, in the history of the PSL, I was reading an article in one of the publications that we made a record of 32 shots in 90 minutes and we didn't even score a goal (in our previous match).
"Sometimes like I said things even themselves out. The rub of the green sometimes falls on your side. Fortune favours the brave and credit to the players for being on the receiving end of that."
