Bucs Coach: We Need To Learn So Many Things

Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojević claimed his side 'need to learn so many things' after their slender win over Chippa United.

The Buccaneers registered their first three-point haul with a 1-0 win over the Chilli Boys thanks to an own goal from Gaona Modisane.

Pirates had to play the last 20 minutes with 10 men after Mthokozisi Dube was sent off, but they managed to see off a late surge from the hosts to claim the win.

“First of all I believe we had controlled the game very well it was not easy they’re a competitive team that plays with good possession. Everything went well we were leading first half,” Sredojevic told SuperSport.
 
“In the second half we wanted to kill the game however that unfortunate red card of our player put us in the back foot. In the last 15 minutes, we were playing with a player less and the opponent had the advantage. They had the advantage of numbers and dominating.
 
“However, whether you’re winning or trailing you’re training to play with one player less. There’s many more to come. We need to learn so many things."
 
Sredojevic felt the midfield battle was a key factor in the encounter.
 
“Kurt Lentjies, [Thamsanqa] Sangweni and whoever their third player in midfield were battling with our three midfielders. This was the main battle, the mother of all battles. I’m happy with some aspects of our performance and I’m happy with the result but there’s so much to improve in the next matches ahead of us,” he added.
