Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic has explained that his side’s tendency to miss chances is caused by a lack of composure at crucial moments.

The Buccaneers created a number of excellent goalscoring chances in their last two games against Mamelodi Sundowns and Polokwane City, but poor finishing on both occasions led to the Soweto giants losing.

Against the Brazilians in the Premiership, Thabo Qalinge and Thembinkosi Lorch were guilty while the eventual loss to Rise and Shine on penalties in the Telkom Knockout saw the likes of Mpho Makola and Thamsanqa Gabuza spurn some golden opportunities.

As such, Micho says it is a priority to fix the problem, telling reporters: "There is a mixed taste inside of me. There is the pride that the players tried their best - creating but not converting.

"They create chances but then blood comes inside the head and this is a process we need to work really hard to build their confidence and relax in situations they are creating."
