The Soweto giants suffered a third straight loss in all competitions after the 1-0 defeat to Highlands Park at Orlando Stadium on Saturday evening.

There has been change of guard in the Pirates dug-out after head coach Milutin Sredojevic resigned on Friday evening which could have affected the side, according to Mokwena.

“Difficult match against a very difficult opponent. You can see we’ve had a lot of things happening within us in the last 48-hours,” Mokwena told SuperSport TV after the match.
 
“But there’s no excuses, we’ll go back and try to improve. We accept the defeat with utmost humility.”
 
“Not enough [chances created], you can see we are a team that still needs a few more training sessions. Unfortunately there’s a congestion with the fixture list and that doesn’t give you time to fix some of the things.
 
“At this moment we’ve had to do a lot of analysis, use video to improve the team and cover some of the cracks in the interim. 
 
“But keep on working to try and improve; work on the players’ confidence because the most important thing is to bounce back and help these players to continue to believe in themselves and believe in the way we have been playing,” he said.
