With two matches to go, Thika united Coach John Kamau has urged the referees to up their game and make right decisions that cannot influence the results.
The Dutch-trained coach believes the key decisions made by the referees in their two league matches against Ulinzi Stars and Tusker influenced the outcome of the clashes.
Against Ulinzi on Sunday 28 October, the referee awarded the hosts a penalty that Kamau feels the whistle-blower adjudged Kepha Aswani to have handled the ball in the area for Mulinge Ndetto to level the score.
In the first leg encounter with Tusker, Kamau claims that the referee denied them the three points after Moses Arita’s genuine goal was ruled off-side.
-The league is in a very critical stage, l appeal to the men in black to be very careful while making their calls and especially if they are not genuine.
-I think the whole of this season l haven’t talked about them [referees]. In the Tusker game, Arita scored a genuine goal but the second assistant referee ruled it offside. Even though the official was suspended, we didn’t benefit as it’s the points that count.
-The same thing happened in Nakuru, the referee’s decision influenced the draw. So, those are six points deducted from my tally. At this crucial stage of the league, I kindly appeal to the men in black to make the right calls, said Kamau to futaa.com.
The Brookside sponsored side is scheduled to date Chemelil Sugar this weekend before wrapping up the campaign with a tough trip to Nairobi against Gor Mahia, on Sunday 11 November.
