Micho Addresses Bucs' Second-Half Problems

Orlando Pirates just managed to claim three points against Baroka FC, and head coach Milutin Sredojevic has explained why his side have struggled in the second half in their last two games.

The Buccaneers returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Baroka at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

Pirates nearly threw away another two-goal lead as they did against Cape Town City, and the Serbian believes playing three games in a week could be the factor for the second-half showing.

“Perfect first half we were leading 2-0, exactly what we have said going into the lead at halftime. We did not want to put the pressure on the boys by telling them what happened in the last match,” Sredojevic told SuperSport after the match.

“We were looking forward to the second half but it looks like we have paid an expensive bill of playing a third match in seven days. When you consider that and conceding a goal [towards the end] we had some nervy moments.

“We need critically to look how to manage that situation and how not to bring us to nervy last few minutes. 

“We know you know how to play football but can you get the result? Challenge yourself [in the] second half try to be better than the first half improve and respect that ball. We didn’t respect that ball and we conceded that goal. However, three points we shall pick and we’ll criticise behind closed doors."
