Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic says he was pleased with the performance from his charges following their 2-2 draw with Polokwane City.
Thamsanqa Gabuza struck in second-half stoppage time to earn the Soweto giants a point at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Serbian tactician says this is a sign that the team is improving mentally after their horrible campaign last season.
"We needed to be clinical, end-to-end stuff. We conceded two goals against the run of play at the time we had chances to score. In the end I think justice is slow but reachable," the coach told SuperSport TV.
"We didn't punish them after dominating. This is the best way to learn. This is by far the best football [game] we've played from the football point [of view]. We created many chances but we could not convert.
"However, we're going into the break with critical analysis [in mind] of why we conceded like this when we were supposed to have the emotional intelligence to control the situation to not go in attack after a counter-attack. A big team like Pirates need to play with domination and close counter-attack.
"We are on a good road and happy with the point, regretfully we didn't win. The last goal is the sign of the mental strength from the team. I'm happy the players gave everything, respecting the badge."
