Orlando Pirates fans feel Themba Zwane should have been sent off following his challenge on Nkosinathi Sibisi as the Bucs suffered defeat to the Brazilians on Saturday.
Sundowns beat Pirates 1-0 to extend their winning run to 15 straight PSL matches in what was another major statement from the Brazilians, who are now 27 points ahead of the Soweto giants.
While some feel the Buccaneers deserved something from the game after their much-improved second-half display, a significant number of Pirates supporters think Zwane was lucky to stay on after the horrendous challenge.
Sundowns played with 11 players plus the referee to make it 12. [Themba] Zwane should have been out with a red card. Then [Thabang] Monare got an unnecessary booking. Penalty not given. – Nkokhelo Nkosi
Denied a clear penalty and a red card for Zwane. Sundowns looked a bit fragile today [Saturday]. – Damilola Davies
I am not taking anything away from Sundowns, however, I must say that referees are now too lenient when it comes to decisions against them. The incident of Zwane and [Khuliso] Mudau leaves more questions than answers. – Sipho Cosmos Zulu
