Kaizer Chiefs struggled to get past 10-man Stellenbosch on Saturday in the Premier Soccer League game staged at the FNB Stadium.
Sage Stephens was dismissed for denying Amakhosi a clear goal-scoring opportunity with the latter eventually winning 2-1 courtesy of goals from Ashley du Preez - from the penalty spot - and Keagan Dolly. Stellies scored their solitary strike through Ibraheem Jabbaar.
Steve Barker felt Chiefs were favoured by the referee and questioned why they have benefited from most red cards this season.
Despite their numerical advantage, Amakhosi did not impress and almost conceded a late equaliser.
Coach Arthur Zwane admitted Chiefs were lucky to win the game and the fans have now had their say.
