Micho Won’t Blame Defence Nor Goalkeeping

Orlando Pirates head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, has refused to blame the team’s defence or goalkeeping for last night’s draw at home.

Leading 2-0 at half-time in their Absa Premiership match against Cape Town City at the Orlando Stadium last night, Bucs gave away the lead in the second half as Ayanda Patosi scored two goals in under 10 minutes to inspire the Mother City outfit to a 2-2 draw at full-time.

With Augustine Mulenga and Innocent Maela having scored early goals for the Buccaneers in the first half, Patosi went on to score his first of the two goals in the 69th minute with a volley on the edge of the box, while his second strike went past Siyabonga Mpontshane eight minutes later from a free kick. 

Speaking to the media after the match, Sredojevic credited Bucs for their scoring form of late despite the drop of points against the Citizens.  

“We are still satisfied with the (number) of chances we are creating. We are satisfied that in the last three matches we have scored seven goals,” said Sredojevic.

The Serbian mentor has highlighted the importance of defending as a team in the upcoming matches for the Soweto giants.

“We need to tighten at the back. I’m not talking about goalkeepers and defenders. We need to speak about others that are involved in defending and the whole team from high up the field need to be involved in order to avoid situations of conceding,” he said.
