Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic says they tried their best to beat rivals Kaizer Chiefs in a PSL clash on Saturday afternoon.

Despite their failure to secure a win and close the gap on log leaders, Bidvest Wits, the Bucs gaffer believes that they still have so many games to fight for the PSL title.

“We tried our best, just as Chiefs did. We pulled off this draw. There may be regrets, but it's not about what you deserve, but what you get,” said Sredojevic to the media.

Pirates are four points behind Wits, but the former have one game in hand as the race for the PSL title intensifies.

“There are a lot of matches to go. It wasn't an ordinary match. It was end to end. We wanted an extraordinary performance against a top class team,” he added.

“This is a mother of all matches in this country. Football is played for supporters. The important thing is to allow players to express themselves and not be intimidated by the crowd. It's a match that can help a player develop,” reacted the manager.

Chiefs managed to avoid their third defeat to Pirates in all competitions this term.

“Chiefs were a bit unconventional, full of energy. Different. They stretched us wide with (Happy) Mashiane and (Bernard) Parker – we answered that,” continued the coach.

“We put ourselves in a better offensive shape in the second half,” concluded the coach.
