AFC Leopards coach Ivan Minnaert has blamed match officials for the team’s 1-0 defeat againstMuhoroni Youth on Saturday.

Ingwe were seeking to bounce back to winning ways after a poor run of four winless matches but a late strike from second half substitute Benjamin Mosha was enough to hand the sugar millers vital points at home.

Speaking afterwards, the Belgian tactician said he was left gutted by the several decisions from the match referee which did not ‘go our way.’

“If you look at the match nothing went in favour of us. Every call from the referee was in favour of the home team. We had several calls for handball that the referee never bothered to give and every time we went forward, the referee could stop the match. That was unfair for my team.”

AFC Leopards will now have to wait until May 21 to end the poor run when they play away to Thika United.
