Orlando Pirates defeated Bloemfontein Celtic to keep their title hopes alive, but head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic felt it was the Buccaneers' worst performance of the season.

Goals from Musa Nyatama and substitute Augustine Mulenga steered Pirates to a 2-1 win over Celtic at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday evening.
However, the Buccaneers coach was far from happy with his side's display against the Free State outfit, who finished the game with 10 men.
“In 35 matches this season, this may be our worst performance, whether it was the pressure of having to win or not, we have to go back and analyse to come back much stronger than this," Sredojevic told SuperSport after the game.
“We need to improve every department, defensively, midfield and attacking-wise. The only positive for today is that we won the game.
“We did a total risk when they went a man down. Putting four strikers upfront and launched a five-man attack which paid off in the end.
“We pulled (Thamsanqa) Gabuza to defence. The first time he has played there and we needed that because Happy was injured and it paid off because we won the game. The only positive is the three points.
“The rest of the things are for the constructive critics and the rest of the things are to improve to come much stronger next week when we face SuperSport."
