Herentals under20 coach feels that they are being robbed following their 1-1 draw with Chegutu Pirates at Morris Depot on Friday.
Herentals Under20 have a good start into the season, recording seven wins, three draws and five losses, however the team has now locked at a drawing board.
Benza said referees are not being fair on them both on home and away games and he considered their draw as a loss.
“We lost mainly due to the centre referee who was biased from the first whistle.
“He issued four unnecessary yellow cards to our players yet Chegutu players were indulging in rough tackles but no yellow card were given to them.
“A Chegutu player used his hand to defend the ball in the penalty area but we were given a corner instead of a penalty,” he said.
He also said that the issue is going to be addressed to the officials as a way forward.
“As a way to end these scandals we are going to complain officially to the officials because such officiating is bad for football,” he said.
However, Benza promises to fight their rivals by playing good football.
“We are however going to continue playing good football, even in our next assignment this weekend against Grain Tigers.
“We are going to Aspindale to collect maximum points to keep our status at hand,” he said.
