The former Bidvest Wits and Kaizer Chiefs teacher was clearly frustrated to the point of pushing away the cameraman who was supervising him at the end of the game.
Given Msimanga opened the scoring in the 34th minute with a superb header past Baalef Pule. The young sensation, Ofelele Theta, was the one to convert the cross.
SuperSport dominated the proceedings shortly after conceding, but their efforts were always tame and out of place.
Bradley Grobler had an opportunity early in the second stanza when he received a wonderful through ball from Gampani Lungu, but the former Bafana Bafana striker missed his chance and fired past goalkeeper Melusi Buthelezi.
Six minutes after the hour Ebrahim Sidat scored his first goal of the season. Theta was again the provider but Sidat did his best to save what looked like a stray ball. Teta flicked the ball across goal and had to watch it fly past goalkeeper Pule and several United defenders before he found Sidat on the left.
The Rockets now have seven points after beating reigning DStv champions Mamelodi Sundowns and drawing with AmaZulu in their opening two games of the season.
