Bucs’ Season Summary: Misfortune, Regret & Belief…

Orlando Pirates’ head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has described the team’s season as the one of regrets due to the number of their draws, instead of wins.

The Buccaneers have drawn a whopping 12 matches so far in their 2018/19 campaign, and according to the Serbian coach, the number has to be reduced, going into the next season.

Bucs saw their Absa Premiership title hopes take a knock on the weekend, after they drew 2-2 with Cape Town City at Athlone Stadium on Saturday.

With Mamelodi Sundowns still having six points to play for from their remaining two matches of the season, and also with a chance to finish their campaign on 59 points to beat Pirates to the title, Sredojevic says the Buccaneers would be pleased to surpass their points tally of last season.

The Soweto giants are currently on 54 points and at the top of the log, while Sundowns have 53 points and in second place.

“With 54 points, last year we had 55, we believe if we have 57 points (will) have surpassed what we did last year,” Sredojevic told the media after the match on Saturday.

“By so many draws, very unfortunate, where we were supposed to win in those draws, at least half of them we were supposed to win convincingly. So, (we are) regretting that. But this is an expensive bill you are paying when you are in process. The standard of losing only three matches until now in all season is something that we need to keep. We need to have more wins than…we need to reduce the number of draws to have more wins. This is something that we need to have as a formula,” the coach added.

Despite not having won any trophy thus far, Sredojevic believes that Pirates have had a good season.

“Otherwise, a marvellous season. I need to give credit to the players. We have been in five competitions. I need to remind that in every competition we did not lose straight, but we lost on penalties from the MTN8, in finals of Telkom and in Nedbank Cup. It is something we believe that football was supposed to pay us back. We gave everything today, but it was not meant to be. We are looking towards the Polokwane match in order to see where we are and how we are and what we are supposed to do,” the coach concluded.
