Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic says his players are still struggling to kill off games but felt they showed respect for the Bucs jersey with the win over Ajax Cape Town.
Pirates moved up to second spot in the Absa Premiership standings after defeating the Urban Warriors 1-0 at Orlando Stadium.
The Buccaneers missed a couple of chances and had two goals disallowed in the second half, but the coach gave credit to his players.
"We entered this game with the intention to win the game. 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 have 11 days for four matches and winning could be an injection of motivation for players to continue to pick up the points to put Orlando Pirates where it belongs."
