Sifiso Myeni believes Orlando Pirates were unlucky not to grab the bragging rights as they were kept to a goalless draw by fierce rivals Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
The former Bidvest Wits midfielder was named man of the match after what was a rather stale Soweto Derby which promised to come to life in the second-half.
The 26-year-old had the Buccaneers' best chance with his effort from range cannoning off the inside of the crossbar.
The stalemate leaves Pirates 14-points off table toppers Amakhosi heading into the final eight games of the season.
"Unlucky we didn't win. I think we created more chances than Chiefs. I think for us it's just to go back and do the job in the next game," said Myeni in the aftermath.
"The coach told us to start quickly, the first 10 minutes are very crucial. After the first 10 minutes you could see they were a little bit scared, we had too much space.
"In the first 10 minutes of the second half they came out fighting and almost scored a goal, but we tried and recouped as a team."
Next up for Pirates is a home game against Chippa United on Tuesday.
