However, despite the win Sredojevic said his players are still struggling with winning games convincingly.

“We entered this game with the intention to win it. We opened the game at the right time and then we have that problem of killing off the game,” Sredojevic told SuperSport TV.

“We had two goals disallowed, anyhow we need to respect what has been decided. I want to give credit to the players for everything here, they really respected the badge and the jersey.

“Unfortunately we couldn’t score more, but we won the match and we are looking forward to improve a lot because it has been the international break. When you come back we play four matches in 11 days and winning could be an injection of motivation for players to continue to pick up the points to put Orlando Pirates where it belongs.”
