Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic says they want to heal the souls of their supporters this season with good results and performances. 

The Buccaneers return to winning ways in the PSL when they defeated Baroka FC 3-1 at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

As a result, Pirates are placed fifth on the league standings with 23 points from 16 games. They are five points behind log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

“If our conversion rate was better, we would be far,” Sredojevic said on IOL.

“We have drawn eight matches, out of those matches six should have been easy wins for us if we were more clinical upfront. If that happened, we would be talking a totally different story," he continued.

"But we can’t cry over spilt milk. We went on the break disappointed. We refreshed the team physically and mentally," he added.

Nicknamed Micho, Sredojevic feels that his side is a work in progress.

“People come to the stadium for the same reasons they go to the hospital, looking to be healed in their souls,” he said.

“I want us to heal their souls and make them happy. We have entered the New Year with a new spirit," the former Uganda coach added.

"We haven’t arrived though because in a big club when you win it’s normal, when you draw there are huge question marks and when you lose there is a revolution," he cocluded.

Pirates will travel to the Loftus Versfeld Stadium where they will face Sundowns in a PSL match on Saturday.
