Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic sees light at the end of the tunnel for his side.

Pressure is mounting on the experienced tactician with the Soweto giants have endured a poor start to the new 2018/19 campaign having recorded only one win out of five matches.

They have also registered three successive defeats including the loss to SuperSport United on penalties at the Orlando Stadium in the 2018 MTN8 quarter-final match held two weeks ago.

Before losing to Bidvest Wits and Bloemfontein Celtic at the Orlando Stadium and Free State Stadium respectively in Premier Soccer League (PSL) matches last week. 

Micho feels that Bucs' players have been performing well by dominating matches, but they have been wasteful in front of goal. 

“There are two types of crises – performance and result. When you have a crisis of performance and results, then it is a disaster,” Sredojevic told Daily Sun.

“However, we don’t have, at all, a crisis of performance. We have dominated all matches we have played so far," he continued. 

The Serbian tactician believes that the Buccaneers will improve gradually as he has identified some positives signs. 

“Remember, in building the house you cannot put down the foundation, the first floor and immediately put on the roof at the same time," he added.

"There is no magic stick, no button to press to make things improve immediately," he concluded. 

Pirates were recently eliminated from the MTN8 competition and they will now focus on the league.

They will be hoping to return to winning ways when they travel to the Limpopo Province where they are expected to face Black Leopards on August 28.
