Bucs Coach Not Happy With Decision-Making Upfront

Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic felt his attackers failed to take advantage of Richard Ofori's weakness.

The Buccaneers had to settle for a point on home soil after being held to a goalless draw by the Team of Choice.

The Serbian tactician claims Ofori is not good on the ground, something which his side failed to capatilise on.

“We started very well. We agreed that we shall find weaknesses in their defence and expose it. They are playing with three behind and then we had three of our players wide, with (Thembinkosi) Lorch and (Justin) Shonga coming into wide spaces," Sredojevic told SuperSport after the game.

“We were creating chances, but then when we were creating chances we had wrong decision making against a tall goalkeeper like (Richard) Ofori, you can’t shoot at him in the areas of his chest or shoulder because there he will react. He has a problem on the ground, we didn’t go for those balls on the ground.

“We didn’t go for the cut backs because the opponents defence is fully focused in protecting him. We missed those chances. We didn’t open the game in time. And then on halftime, the opponent started to grow in confidence.
