Themba Zwane's goal and an own-goal from Chris Katjiukua in the first half saw the Brazilians battle to a 2-1 victory in their Absa Premiership clash against Black Leopards at Thohoyandou Stadium on Wednesday.

Mwape Musonda scored the hosts' goal on the hour mark.

Speaking after the match, Mosimane was upset with the referee's application of the new handball rules and feels his side deserved to be awarded a penalty as well.

"You know they always come back late here, I knew that they would put us under a lot of stress hence my substitutes, I put Lyle [Lakay] and [Tebogo] Langerman on one side, because [Khuliso] Mudau is coming. I put Thapelo [Morena] and Anele [Ngongca] on the right side because [Pentjie] Zulu is coming. So I put my two right-backs as wingers because we have a problem of overlaps," Mosimane told SuperSport TV.

"What a good goal by [Mwape] Musonda, he's a prolific striker, he doesn't have to wait a little bit, he just hit it at once. He's a top striker. But I think we should have got a penalty, the new rule says when your hand is up in the box you must blow. The referee chickened out, he's going with the old rules. I've suffered twice.

"When it's [Kaizer] Chiefs, it's always a penalty, it was a penalty [for] Chiefs yesterday. I must get a penalty also, I must benefit. Chiefs is benefiting from the mistakes of referees. It's not about Chiefs, I'm highlighting the realities. It is true, no matter what.

"I will talk even if we lose. But the referee was not bad. We had to manage the game, just manage it until it finishes, we can't allow from 2-0 and then we lose the match? No, no. We can't allow it. I had to kill it, increase the midfield. That's why I put Sammy Seabi to help 'AJ' [Andile Jali], the rest is just hype, hype and the game will finish, we know that."
