Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town head coach Stanley Menzo feels his side's sluggish start to their fixture against Orlando Pirates cost them the opportunity of maximum points.

The Buccaneers took the lead in the ninth minute through Ghanaian playmaker Bernard Morrison as the Soweto giants took control of the first-half at the Orlando Stadium.

In the second period, the Urban Warriors put up a spirited performance and pressed Micho Sredojevic's side higher up the pitch but were unable to find a way through as the game was decided by he solitary strike.

"We conceded an unnecessary goal from a throw-in," Menzo said after the game.

"We had problems in the first 20 minutes. I think, they (Pirates) were rotating on our right side. After 20 minutes we took the situation back. The last part of the first half we were okay.

"Second-half, we have to make better decisions, quicker handling. We made them struggle and with a little bit of luck we could have made it 1-1."

The result left the Ikamva based side in 15th place and winless after three Premiership games.
