The club has today lodged a formal complaint with the Ghana Football Association over the conduct of the referees who officiated the Kumasi derby against King Faisal.

“We have officially complained to the GFA”, Communications and Brands Manager, David Obeng Nyarko confirmed to us on Monday.

The Porcupines suffered their first defeat this 2021/22 Premier League season on Sunday, losing 3-2 to our cross-city rivals at Baba Yara Stadium.

It was a gallant display by the Porcupines who had to endure several controversial calls from referee Julian Nunoo and his Assistants, Akwasi Brobbey, Roland Nii Addy, Daniel Nii Laryea and Match Commissioner, James Adjei.

Isaac Oppong was denied a penalty after he was caught from behind in the box as what appeared a perfect goal by George Mfegue was disallowed for offside.

The biggest of all the controversies was the referee awarding a penalty after a handball in the opponent box but later rescinded the decision after some consultations.

That was the third time this season we have had what appeared to be clean goals being disallowed and the club, this time around is seeking redress at the country’s football governing body.
