Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has refused to complain about his side's congested start to the season, saying that his squad will adjust to it.

Pirates will play their third league fixture of the season against Wits on Wednesday evening, just 11 days after it kicked off.

They also endured a gruelling 120 minutes plus penalties against SuperSport United in the MTN8.

"I would not like to join and complain about the fixtures because I think, having just come from pre-season, all of us are still hungry for football," said Micho, according to KickOff website.

"We have our squad and pool of players that are meant to answer to that (challenge), and we have our training methodologies on how to provide recovery in whatever way necessary.

"And, with that in mind, we need to accept that the season is the way it is, so we need to adjust to that and we shall give our best from that point.

"I would not go to the direction of complaining of anything. We need to accept that this is the way it is. We shall answer properly, and we look forward to the matches ahead of us."

The Buccaneers will be looking to return to winning ways after their shootout heartbreak against Matsatsantsa after a 2-2 draw.

Wednesday's clash at Orlando Stadium will kick off at 19:30.
