Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler expressed his concern about the team's bluntness in front of goal after their Telkom Knockout semi-final.
The second Soweto Derby in just over a week was decided on penalties after neither side was able to find the back of the net through 120 minutes of football, with Chiefs emerging 6-5 victors.
Pirates will now turn their attentions towards their CAF Confederations Cup showdown against Etoile du Sahel with the first-leg at the Orlando Stadium on November 21.
Tinkler lamented the Buccaneers' lack of confidence in the final third after Thamsanqa Gabuza and Menzi Masuku missed clear goal scoring opportunities.
"I think it's evident. Our decision-making in the final third, it's something which needs to improve. Our composure is something which needs to improve," Tinkler told KickOff.
"The difficult part is getting yourself in those positions and we managed to do that in a number of games.
"Getting ourselves in those one-versus-one situation, but what becomes important is to show composure to be able to lift your head and make the right decisions.
"We've not managed to do that. The only way we can improve that is to come in every day, work on it and improve it day in and day out."
