Cape Town - Cape Town City head coach Benni McCarthy swore on live TV in a heated post-match interview while fuming at the standard of refereeing in the PSL after a 1-0 loss away to AmaZulu on Saturday.

McCarthy dropped an F-bomb during the interview while sharing his frustration at the match officials for failing to protect his players after winger Craig Martin was on the end of a nasty challenge.

Striker Kermit Erasmus missed a penalty in the first half as defender Tapelo Nyongo's second half free-kick secured a vital 1-0 victory for the hosts to move further away from the drop-zone.

The Citizens were left frustrated after failing to move closer to the summit of the league table after the top three sides all dropped points earlier in the day.
