Johannesburg-Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic was not happy with his side performance despite a win over Bloemfontein Celtic.

The Sea Robbers title hopes are still alive after they beat Celtic 2-1 on Wednesday night at OrlandoStadium, thanks to Musa Nyatama’s header and unleashed strike from Augustine Mulenga to make it 2-1 to the Buccaneers.

Micho felt that his troops never showed any good performance on the night, and he believed that it was Orlando Pirates’ worst performance in 35 games this season.

“In 35 matches this season, this maybe 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,” the Serbian told SuperSport TV.

“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 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,” he said.

Pirates will next take on struggling SuperSport United in an Absa Premier league tie,at Mbombela Stadium next week Wednesday, 11 April.
