Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral felt there were several positives to take away from his side's 1-1 draw with Platinum Stars, but admitted his disappointment at the result.
The Buccaneers looked destined to clinch the three points against Dikwena, but Thabiso Kutumela's 76th-minute strike was cancelled out by Thobani Kunene at the death.
"I think we had complete control of the game. We found openings. We knew they would sit back and play on the counter. Kutumela's chance, one against one with the goalkeeper," he told SuperSport.
"Tendai's situation, he just had to pass to Kutumela that was a goal. There was a couple of entries in the last third. We need to take the right decisions, to pass or hold the ball, get it wide again to open up the lines.
"So there is a lot of positiveness but obviously you can't lose points by giving it away in the dying minutes of the game."
The result sees the Soweto giants move to within one point of top-of-the-table Golden Arrows, who face SuperSport United at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Wednesday evening.
"We needed to control, we sometimes want too much," Ertugral concluded.
"That's why I always say to the team 1-0 up, two, three minutes to go, you don't have to attack anymore.
"You can spread it wide, maybe find an entry from there. I think we gave it away."
