Newly-promoted Tura Magic suffered a 2-0 defeat against Ramblers at the Independence Stadium last night in the fourth round of the Mobile Telecommunications Limited (MTC) Premiership.
Ramblers towering goals-poacher, Heinrich ‘Gazza’ Kazeurua, hammered away the only two goals of the match. Its victory saw it move to the top of the list with 10 points beating African Stars, now in the second spot with nine points.
Tura Magic head coach, Timo Tjongarero, in an interview with V-Sports this morning blamed the defeat on poor refereeing.
Tjongarero claimed that the referee had failed to give his team clear penalties on two different occasions; one of which was a tackle right in the main box while the other was a visible handball.
“The poor guy could not handle the match,” Tjongarero said.
However, he admitted that his charges lacked concentration and that the many chances they created during the match just did not find their way to the back of the net.
Magic will, next weekend, face the Otjiwarongo-based Mighty Gunners at the Mokati Stadium in its fifth appearance.
Second-placed African Stars will, on Friday (tomorrow), take on township rival, Tigers, at the Independence Stadium.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 20H00.
