Speaking after his side's 1-0 loss to Mpumalanga Black Aces, Orlando Pirates head coach Vladimir Vermezovic believes Aces were full value for their win.
Former Pirates striker Thulasizwe Mbuyane sealed the victory for Black Aces and Vermezovic believes that Pirates still have a lot of work ahead of them.
"They deserve this win, they were better in the first half especially," said Vermezovic.
"The second half we tried to control the game but we made one mistake and were punished because of that.
"Congratulations to them in front of us is a lot of work, we have a lot of things to fix and we will work on it."
"We couldn't pass through the middle, because our midfielders weren't on their usual level on the game because of that we couldn't pass, we couldn't build up."
