Extension Gunners head coach Itumeleng Duiker was disappointed with the officiating as his side drew with Orapa United.

Orapa held Gunners to a 2-2 draw in a Botswana Premier League (BPL) match at the Lobatse Sports Complex on Saturday.

Ofentse Mmipi and Ronald Olaki both netted for Gunners, while Orapa's goals were scored by Lemogang Maswena and Tapiwa Nyamanjiva.

"Some decisions by match officials are questionable.The second goal against us was unfair on our goalkeeper," Duicker to Botswana Football.

"I don't think Orapa deserved that indirect free-kick because our keeper didn't delay to kick the ball.

"We also had a clear cut penalty, the referee decided to ignore the incident," he added.

"Sometimes match officials force us coaches to make harsh statements about them, which is not good for the game."

The draw left Gunners and Orapa placed 11th and fourth respectively on the league standings.
