Goal compares the two European coaches ahead of Wednesday's clash between Bucs and Lidoda Duvha

Black Leopards coach Dylan Kerr and his troops will make a trip to Soweto where they are scheduled to face Milutin Sredojevic's Orlando Pirates on Wednesday.

The well-travelled trainer managed to stabilize the Lidoda Duvha ship after replacing Joel Masutha four months into the current campaign.

It took Kerr only two months for him to make his mark as he became the first Leopards coach in 10 years to win the PSL Coach of the Month accolade in January 2019.

The former Gor Mahia coach masterminded three wins out of six matches (plus two draws and one loss) which saw Leopards move further away from the relegation zone.

Leopards have since played 12 league matches under Kerr at the Limpopo-based outfit - recording four wins, four draws and four defeats, accumulating 16 points in the process.

How does the English tactician compare with Pirates' Serbian trainer Sredojevic, who is in his second spell as the head coach of the Soweto giants?

The Buccaneers have registered 11 wins, 11 draws and three defeats this season which sees them sitting at the top of the league standings with 44 points from 25 matches.

Nicknamed Micho, Sredojevic boasts a winning percentage of 44%, while his counterpart Kerr has a winning percentage of 33.3%.

Pirates are averaging 1.76 points per game compared to Leopards' 1.3 under Kerr, who is in his debut season in the PSL.

Leopards have done relatively well since Kerr's arrival having scored 15 goals - averaging 1.25 goals per game and Micho's side averages 1.36.

The stats show that Sredojevic has been tactically superior to Kerr, who has instilled tactical discipline in his side.

Kerr has transformed Leopards into a potential top eight team within a short period of time, while Sredojevic's well-oiled Bucs machine pursue the league title.
