Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic says his side is not scoring enough, following their 1-1 draw at home to Platinum Stars on Wednesday evening.

The Buccaneers have now gone three league matches without a win - and scored just seven goals in eight games - after they were held by bottom-of-the-log Stars at FNB Stadium.

It was not the ideal preparation for this weekend’s eagerly-anticipated Soweto derby against Kaizer Chiefs, which will be played at the same venue on Saturday afternoon.

"I really don't know whether we've been in Saturday's game. We were told that this match was supposed to be a bridge for Saturday," Micho told SuperSport TV cameras.

"I'm happy with the way we've been patient with possession but not scoring enough, creating enough but not scoring enough.

"Football has shown us a very cruel aspect when you score the goal, instead of the next two, three minutes you are not conceding. Emotionally, we have not been settled, we conceded immediately.

"We tried after to create [chances], it was not easy. The opponents were sitting back and defending. We have tried with patience to reach towards the goal but we did not succeed.

"Unfortunately, [it was] one of those days where you regret that domination has not been the difference."
