Cape Town - Orlando Pirates head coach Muhsin Ertugral has admitted that his side are not currently playing good enough football to be successful.

Pirates struggled to a 1-1 draw in their last match in the Premiership against Polokwane City, requiring a Tendai Ndoro header at the death to save Ertugral's side.

It was Bucs' third match in a row that they have failed to record a win, and leaves the Sea Robbers four points behind co-leaders Kaizer Chiefs and Golden Arrows.

In addition, the team are relying heavily on Ndoro to score goals - the Zimbabwe international has hit six of the seven league strikes scored by Pirates this season.

Ertugral has made no secret of his dissatisfaction with the current level of performances.

He told reporters: "We are not good enough. We are not creating enough chances. I can't be happy. We started the season to win trophies and we must play the type of football that is expected from us.

"In my opinion, we don't play that attacking football that we want to play."
