Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler was disappointed to only come away with a point from their 1-1 draw with Mpumalanga Black Aces.

The Buccaneers looked comfortable throughout the game at Orlando Stadium, but had to settle for a share of the spoils after Collins Mbesuma had cancelled out Mpho Makola's 21st-minute strike.

Pirates had several more chances to grab the win, but could not find a way past Shu-Aib Walters in the Aces goal and Tinkler felt they should have won given the amount of chances created.

"We're disappointed to have one point after all the chances we created. And having played so well. We found a lot of spaces," he said in his post-match press conference.

"We scored a goal then took our foot off the pedal. We got punished by conceding a silly goal before half-time.

"We got better when Roger Majafa came on. The confidence grew and it showed as we went. But it's still very disappointing.

"Its positive that the guys came out fighting, going for the points, working hard. Now we need to go to Polokwane and get the points."
