Orlando Pirates coach Micho Sredojovic still believes the club is on the right track to rectify their past two disastrous campaigns following their battling 2-2 draw with Polokwane City at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday night.

The Buccaneers played their seventh Absa Premiership match and sit on 12 points after three wins, three draws and one loss.

The Soweto giants could have easily won the tie having dominated the game after taking the lead through Thamsanqa Gabuza in the 51st minute.

The striker became the hero of the day, saving the team from defeat with a 90th-minute strike after Rise and Shine responded with a 61st-minute Rendani Ndou goal, before taking the lead through veteran striker Rodney Ramagalela in the 69th minute.

“We needed to be clinical and play end-to-end stuff. We conceded two goals against the run of play and at the time we had chances to score. In the end I think justice is slow but reachable,” Micho told SuperSport TV.

“We did not punish them after dominating. This is the best way to learn.”
