Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic says it's back to the drawing board after his team were booted out of the Telkom Knockout on the weekend.
Pirates were eliminated 4-2 on penalties by Polokwane City in the quarter-finals at Orlando Stadium on Saturday night, adding to the disappointment of their 3-1 league loss to Mamelodi Sundowns three days earlier.
Sredojevic says his side need to improve on all fronts ahead of their next Premiership game with Golden Arrows in Soweto on November 21 after the FIFA international break.
“For us we need to go back to the drawing board to deeply analyse and improve in all aspects, in being much better going forward, in being much better in converting, in being much better in not conceding in a cheap way,” said ‘Micho’
“And those are strategic targets that we should look to work on before resuming the Premier Soccer League with the game against Arrows here on November 21.”
Pirates created more chances than City and missed a penalty through Mpho Makola in the first half of regulation time. Micho says he will use the down time to build up his players' confidence.
“It's a process that we need to work very hard on in order to make them to be confident and relax in the situations that they are creating. It's something in my magic stick that doesn’t exit. It's something we need to work hard on at training sessions. I believe in these boys, I believe in their qualities,” concluded the Serbian.
