Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevich says he wants his players to remain relaxed while striving to win one match at time in the race for the Absa Premiership title.

Currently, the Sea Robbers are in second place in the PSL standings with just a one point between themselves and leaders Mamelodi Sundowns. However, the Brazilians do have a game in hand due to their commitments in the CAF Champions League.

Bucs beat Golden Arrows 2-1 last Saturday as they continued to maintain the pressure on Downs in first. However, Sredojevich is refusing to get carried away with winning the championship, insisting there is a one game at a time focus. 

He told reporters: "We still do not think about that. Our total focus is now on the next match against Bloemfontein Celtic and this is the only thing we will be thinking about. 

"When that match is finished we shall think about SuperSport (United)‚ AmaZulu‚ Wits and Cape Town City and Free State (Stars). 

"We shall go match-by-match, slowly. Let all the pressure be on us as a technical team. Let all the relaxation and improvements football-wise be on the side of the players. 

"We don't want them to feel any pressure. We want to improve our football and let the football be the way of collecting the points. 

"How far we will go (in the title race)‚ we'll see at the end."
