Cape Town - Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic believes the club are making progress in their performances, after Saturday's 2-2 draw with Polokwane City in the Premiership.
Despite taking an early lead through Thamsanqa Gabuza and generally dominating the play, Rise and Shine hit back to take the lead through Lewis Macha and Gift Motupa.
A Gabuza equaliser in injury time to complete his brace spared Bucs from defeat.
Nonetheless, the Sea Robbers appeared to be the better side in the majority of the encounter and this is something Sredojevic touched upon after the contest.
"We needed to be clinical, end to end stuff. We conceded two goals against the run of play at the time we had chances to score," Sredojevic told SuperSport TV.
"In the end I think justice is slow but reachable. We didn't punish them after dominating. This is the best way to learn. This is by far the best football we've played from the football point. We created many chances but we could not convert.
"However, we're going into the break with critical analysis of why we conceded like this when we were supposed to have the emotional intelligence to control the situation to not go in attack after a counter-attack. A big team like Pirates need to play with domination and close counter-attack.
"We are on a good road and happy with the point, regretfully we didn't win. The last goal is the sign of the mental strength from the team. I'm happy the players gave everything, respecting the badge."
