Cape Town - After a goalless Absa Premiership draw, Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic was impressed with SuperSport United.

The Serbian-born mentor praised Eric Tinkler’s charges for the experience they have gained in competing with Africa’s biggest clubs during their participation in the CAF Confederation Cup.

"We have played one very experienced team that had over 20 international games and you could see how they could control themselves throughout the game competitively," Sredojevic said in his post-match interview with SuperSport.

"You could see that playing all over Africa has put mileage in their legs and they are having a great experience." 

Meanwhile, the 48-year-old said that the match could have gone either way but believes that his charges gave it their all.

"They had initiative in the first half in creating chances. We also had one on the other side. At half-time, we regrouped."

Sredojevic added: "I think that the game could have gone either way. I regret that it didn't go our way, because the boys really gave their best in today's game."

The draw sees Pirates fall to third place after Mamelodi Sundowns (first) ran rampant against Baroka FC (second).

SuperSport are ninth place with six games in hand.

The Buccaneers welcome AmaZulu to the Orlando Stadium on Saturday, December 9.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
