Cape Town - Although a bit disappointed by recent results, Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic is optimistic that the Buccaneers are headed in the right direction.

Saturday's 0-0 Soweto derby stalemate against Kaizer Chiefs was a third consecutive league draw for Pirates and means they have gone four matches without a win.

However, the Sea Robbers remain nicely placed on the table – they are in third spot and just two points behind pace-setters Baroka FC. Looking at the bigger picture, Sredojevic is confident that his side are on the right track.

"I am not worried, we are introducing a new set-up. We want to build our house, the performance, in a way that we have an identity," he was quoted saying by The Star.

"We dominated our last four games, but the only thing that was missing was converting the chances we created," the Serbian elaborated.

"In a marathon called the league, you have some bad patches but the most important thing is collecting the odd point here and there while you build your momentum. 

"I am convinced that we will start to get wins. The performances that we have displayed are injecting us with immense confidence. We will continue playing our way. The results will come."

Pirates are next in action when they play Golden Arrows in a Telkom Knockout first round encounter in Durban on Saturday.

Kick off is at 15:30.
