Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa admits that his side should have buried one of their chances in their CAF Champions League semi-final first-leg on Saturday night.
The Sea Robbers dominated possession against Esperance at the Orlando Stadium but struggled for chances, while the Tunisian giants looked determined to keep a clean sheet.
De Sa believes that his troops will have learned valuable lessons on Saturday and hopes to go to Tunisia in two weeks to "finish the job".
"I thought we had enough chance to put one away. In the first-half we were poor, we didn't hit the target once.
The second-half we came alive a bit more, we got in behind them. But at this level you have to take those chances. The few chances that come your way, you have to put one away. That's what they are likely to do and we've got to learn that," he said.
"It was a learning curb for us. You saw how they killed the game. But we battled on, I thought it was okay and we've got something to play with.
"It's not a bad result. We get a goal away from home and we've got a chance. It's not a bad result, I just didn't want to concede. Obviously we would have liked to put one or two away. But this is one of the top sides in Africa and we competed pretty well. I just hope we can finish the job now.
"They're a good team. They can knock the ball around when they want to. I think we've got our strengths too. Hopefully we'll get the guys fully fit for the next one."
