Cape Town - Amazulu midfielder Michael Morton defended his actions that led to him being sent off after Bidvest Wits winger Gabadinho Mhango spat in his face.

Morton, who is on loan from SuperSport United, turned from hero to villain in a surprise 3-0 win over the PSL champions when he was involved in a clash with Mhango after a free-kick had been awarded.

The midfielder seemed to react furiously with the red mist descending when pushing Mhango repeatedly leading to him receive his marching orders.

Video replays showed that Mhango had inexplicably spat in Morton's face which went unpunished by the referee with Amazulu reduced to 10 men with 20 minutes left on the clock.

Mhango, who was already recently involved in an altercation against Golden Arrows should now receive a lengthy ban for what players view as the worst act against an opponent.
