'Kaizer Chiefs deserved another penalty; Yusuf Maart red card was right': Ace "Mr Spot On" Ncobo
Andile 'Ace' Ncobo had his hands full on this week's edition of 'Extra Time' on SuperSport.
As reported by Sports Brief, he addressed two controversial matters in the thrilling DStv Premiership encounter between Richards Bay FC and Kaizer Chiefs at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban which the Amakhosi won one-nil via a late Dillan Solomons penalty.
Regarding a blatant foul that should have resulted in an earlier Amakhosi penalty following a trip on Kgaogeloa Sekgota by Abel Mabaso, he said:
"Tripping: I will use the word that appears in the text of the Laws of the Game and not "entanglement". The tripping is inside the penalty area. It should have been a penalty. The referee chickened out of giving the decision, there. I refuse to believe that he didn't see it given how he had positioned himself perfectly."
As for Chiefs midfielder Yusuf Maart's sending off for a professional foul on the Rich Boyz' Sanele Barns who was through on goals, Ncobo added:
"It's the opportunity and the obviousness of the opportunity that the referee must look at. Was there a defender who could have covered for his teammate [Maart] taking away the 'obviousness' of the opportunity? There wasn't."
