Red Arrows coach Honour Janza has alleged that Lusaka referee Audrick Nkole favoured Power Dynamos to beat his side 3-1 on Saturday.
Nkole awarded Power a controversial late penalty that was converted by two-goal hero Alex Ng’onga as Power overcame Arrows in this Round 25 match of the Super Division.
In a post-match interview, Janza described Nkole’s officiating in this game as the worst he has experienced.
“Let the referees not participate in influencing the game. Let the officials make the ground even for both teams.
The referee must be fair to the boys,” he lamented.
“This is the worst officiating I have experienced. You can see that this is a mistake or the referee did it deliberately. The first goal for Power Dynamos, if there are no longer offside rules in football the referees should tell us,” he said.
Nkole also sent off Janza’s assistants Joel Bwalya and Kalililo Kakonje for protesting his decisions.
“For me it was useless to be on the bench with that officiating.”
Power coach Dan Kabwe saluted his team for scoring three goals.
“Goals have flown today. I am happy we have scored,” Kabwe said.
