Despite lauding the victors for their style of play, Baraza feels the outcome could have been different

Sofapaka head coach John Baraza is far from impressed from the way his match with Tusker was officiated.

Batoto Ba Mungu failed to chop off Gor Mahia’s 12-point lead after falling to Tusker on Monday.

Sofapaka went ahead through Kevin Kimani before Timothy Otieno and David Juma replied within a span of five minutes to ensure the Brewers avenged the 5-4 loss in the first leg.

Despite lauding the victors for their style of play, Baraza feels the outcome could have been different if officiating would have been objective.

"Tusker played well. I cannot take that away from them and they won the match, but at times the level of officiating is wanting.

“We cannot keep preparing for these kinds of matches week in week out, only for the referees to spoil them with officiating, it is unacceptable!

"Things like these demoralize us if you cannot officiate the match well, let those who can do it."

Despite the lose, Sofapaka are still second on the log with 40 points.
