The Buccaneers claimed a second successive Absa Premiership victory after defeating SuperSport 3-1 at Orlando Stadium.

The Serbian brought on Thembinkosi Lorch and Justin Shonga with 15 minutes remaining, with both players having a big say in the end result.

“We had played with three behind [in defence] then we put [Thabane]Thopola inside because the opponent had four attackers. We needed to minumise that threat," Sredojevic told SuperSport after the game.

“However, immediately thereafter we conceded a goal. We put two players [extra] upfront [Thembinkosi Lorch and Justin Shonga] to go for all or nothing and we out-scored the opponent and won this game,” he concluded.

'Micho' was pleased with the desire his side showed in getting their first league win over SuperSport since the 2014-2015 season.

“We played with a good competitive team with a desire to break the jinx, after a long time we are beating SuperSport United here at home,” he added.

“If you look at that we need to be happy, but in the same moment we need to be critical that we have allowed the opponent to come back instead of killing the game. However, we had the answer with Lorch and Shonga coming in I believe it was a decisive factor in the game.

“We always write the document we play, today we put the signature defensively  and put the stamp scoring wise so the document is fully valid and the three points are there.”
