Leopards coach blasts ref

Nairobi - AFC Leopards head coach Hendrik Pieter de Jongh has laid the blame on
the referee for their 2-1 loss to Ulinzi Stars on Saturday.
Ingwe are stuck in 12th position in the KPL table following the defeat, which was their first against Ulinzi in three years.
The Leopards mentor, however, believes they were robbed, after being
denied a penalty which would have given them a chance to tie the game.
"I am unhappy with the officiating in the game because now it has
cost us points," De Jongh said during his post match interview.
"It is a common occurrence in the KPL and the federation has to do
something about it as soon as possible. Today, particularly, it was so
bad from both the referee and his assistants.
"They denied Leopards a penalty yet they had given the opponents one is very similar circumstances."
Ulinzi scored their second goal from the penalty spot, after Joseph
Shikokoti's handball in the box. Ingwe had a shout when Mohammed Hassan
seemed to handle on the other end, but their appeals fell on deaf ears.
