Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic believes his side could have scored more goals in their win over Ajax Cape Town.
Bernard Morrison netted a brace to lead the Buccaneers to a 2-0 win over the Urban Warriors to advance to the next round of the Nedbank Cup.
However, the Serbian born mentor has cautioned supporters against high expectations in the competition.
“In football whoever is promising is not serious because in football you cannot promise anything. All that we can promise is hard work use the talent of our players, get the performance, get the results and go through,” Sredojevic told SuperSport TV.
“I want to give credit to the players because they did abide to each instruction because in attack we insisted on possession because we knew in one moment the opposition will crack. We used that moment in the first half.
“In the second half we knew they had to come out in the right moment we scored the second goal, when the opponent came out we were supposed to score more goals. I’m very happy that we passed through. Ajax don’t give up easy but I’m happy that we won.”
Micho went on to express his delight for striker Bernard Morrison who netted a brace in his first start for the season.
“Bernard Morrison stood aside mostly because of injuries. He was prepared for this match properly. It’s not easy to make six changes and still keep the consistency in the team but the risk has paid us back. There are competition for places and that will rise the quality and make us better and better," he added.
