TS Galaxy head coach Sead Ramovic says the foul that led to Kaizer Chiefs' equaliser in the second was a 'gift from the referees'.

Galaxy striker Bernard Parker, formerly with Chiefs, cancelled out an early opener by Ashley Du Preez just after the half-hour mark.

Djakaridja Traore gave the Rockets the lead just before the interval but Dolly snatched the equaliser for Amakhosi from a free-kick nine minutes before time.

"I think we started slow, conceded a goal but we came back, it was a great thing and it's not easy to score two goals against a great opponent, a fantastic team," Ramovic told SuperSport.

"I also have to give them a lot of credit, second half our plan was to stay strong and of course to score the next goal but we went too much deep.

"And the came and came and I think we also had some luck in the end but the foul, I didn't see so clear, I think it's not a foul, it was a gift from the referees to them.

"And then you get a goal and of course it's not easy but we're happy about it now, we would be even more happy to get the three points, one point, so now we have to prepare ourselves to get to the next game. Get more points and hopefully everything will be fine."

Ramovic also explained his reasons behind making an early change in the first stanza after bringing on Parker in place of Lifa Hlongwane.

"Yes, because I saw the first 15 minutes we come in, so we changed on 4-3-3 to 4-2-2, with a diamond and it went great but after that we changed again maybe the last 20 minutes because," he added.

"We wanted again to play 4-3-3 to get more offensive but we didn't come in, it's a great experience for all of us and of course we as a team will always stay together and we get the points together. We will do it better, slowly by slowly get to the next level."
