Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic hailed Golden Arrows game plan after they were able to frustrate his side to a goalless draw on Wednesday evening.

The Serbian mentor stated that they explored all options to get a goal on the night but couldn't break the well organised Clinton Larsen's side.

The Sea Robbers, who are in second position in the Premiership standings, could have gone on top of the table with a win over Arrows.

“We played against a very organised team,” Sredojevic told SuperSport in the post-match interview.

“We intended to have a patient build up, from that patient build up to have as many entries into the final third.

“From entrances into the last third it has a domino effect of creating the chances and scoring. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be.

“Arrows defended in numbers. It was in our homework to move that ball faster than what they are shifting and defending.

“We did not plant players in the right angle or in the right areas. This would have created more chances and with creating more chances something would have 100% entered the goal with the law of averages.

“We shall pick up the pieces and analyse this game critically, and we shall improve for our next match against AmaZulu on Saturday.

Sredojevic continued: “At the end of the match we only had two defensive players and threw everything up front, but unfortunately it was not meant to be.

“We have to give credit to our opponent who defended very well and gave us limited chances from which we didn't convert.”

The Buccaneers will travel to Durban for an Absa Premiership clash against AmaZulu at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
