Cape Town - Orlando Pirates captain Happy Jele says the players have learned from their mistakes and will come back an improved team for Saturday's clash against Baroka.

The 31-year-old defender admits that the Buccaneers should have done better in their 2-2 draw against Cape Town City at the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday.

The Sea Robbers relinquished a two-goal deficit which saw Augustine Mulengu and Innocent Maela’s goals cancelled out courtesy of an Ayanda Patosi brace.

However, Jele is confident of a good performance from Micho's side against Bakgaga in Polokwane this weekend despite their midweek mishap.

"We were not relaxed in the first half, it was tactics. That's why we managed to score two goals, and then we managed the game," he told KickOff.

"In the second half, Cape Town City came at us and it was difficult for us. As a team, obviously we're disappointed to drop points at home.

"But we are just going to go the drawing board and fix the things that we did wrong and focus on the next game that's coming on Saturday."

Kick-off is at 15:00.
