Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic says his players lacked the finesse in their draw with Baroka on Tuesday evening.

Bucs missed the chance to move level on points with leaders Bidvest Wits after drawing 1-1 with the Limpopo outfit at the Orlando Stadium.

The Serbian tactician felt his side deserved to walk away with three points and also praised his side’s character to get back into the game.

“Football is not about what you deserve, but what you get. If it was about deserving, we believe we deserved to win but football is like that,” Sredojevic told SuperSport TV,

“From one shot on target, the opponent got the goal. Before we conceded that goal, we were supposed to be up. We did not lose our heads. They had two points of defending, one point was to be tight and defend in numbers and on the other side they were a bit delaying the time and going on the ground and whatever.

“Whenever we had momentum they calmed it down. However, we believed. I need to give credit to the players. We scored that equalising goal, wishing to win but it was not meant to be. We need to pick this and know that in football it is not what you deserve, but what you get.

“We had possession and passion going around [the box] but we needed to have that fertility. We needed to attack the ball the way we have scored and have the second line of attack.

“That factor was missing, that essence [of] finesse in the last third. We had many tries but that finesse [was lacking]. You have it, you’re winning,” he said.
