Orlando Pirates captain Thabo Matlaba was not happy with his side's 1-1 draw against Platinum Stars.

The Buccaneers dropped points for the second straight Absa Premiership encounter after being held by Dikwena at FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Matlaba claims it's vital that Pirates secure maximum points on home soil.

“We didn’t play well in the first half,” Matlaba told SuperSport TV.

“In the second half at least we created chances. We were able to play and circulate the ball.

“We are not happy with the draw. This is our home and we need to collect maximum points.

“Overall I thought we played well.

“Now we are going to prepare for the Derby [against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday].”
