With Usuthu seemingly a few seconds away from sealing an impressive 1 nil victory against the mighty amakhosi, referee with his help from his assistant awarded a dubious penalty to Chiefs in the last minute of the game, for a handball by Tapelo Xoki which on closer inspection shows that there was no penalty.
Dolly scored the penalty to level the scores after Amigo Luvuyo Mamela scored three minutes after the break, which was against the run of the play due to wasteful Chiefs failed to score in the first half.
After the match, a Facebook page called Be football asked whether the brown envelope days are back, and most of the fans seems to agree and gave the referee who was in charge of the clash stick for his decision.
Usuthu head coach Benni McCarthy also had his say about the referee's decision, he said that "When you play against Kaizer Chiefs team and their best player is the referee, you know you got no chance".
