The centre-back committed a blunder against Stellenbosch FC at Danie Craven Stadium and was sent off in the 7th minute.
The Rockets succumbed to a 1-0 defeat. The solitary strike by Ashley Du Preez was the difference on the day.
“I feel I should have dealt better with the situation. As a leader, I should have been calm under the situation. I should have dealt with it better. Everything happened so quickly and I didn’t have much time to think and I used my emotions,” an emotional Sanoka elaborated.
Sanoka will miss the next two DStv Premiership matches. He will be serving his two-match suspension against Lamontville Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns.
“The understanding is now there. All we have to do is not to be complacent. I should have treated the Stellenbosch game the very same way I approached the Chiefs game.
The Rockets won’t be in action for the next two weeks because of the upcoming Fifa break.
After two league outings, the club has amassed one out of possible six points. We shared the spoils with Kaizer Chiefs in our opening match of the season. The game ended in a 0-0 stalemate.
