Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic was left to rue his side's missed chances against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

The two South African giants played to a goalless draw in an Absa Premiership match which was played at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

"From the start I believe we dominated. In the second half we made changes in order to go for the killer," Sredojevic told SuperSport TV.

"It is impossible for a game of this magnitude to dominate from start to finish.

"We had fallen down because we only one day's rest after our match [in midweek]. In the end a very good game for the audience, for the supporters," he continued.

The draw left Pirates and Chiefs placed third and fourth on the league standings respectively.

"It's like a cane without sugar in the end. The goals were the only thing missing, we tried our best but unfortunately it was not supposed to be," the Serbian explained.

"We played with [Thamsanqa] Gabuza in the second half with more aerial presence and [Bernard] Morrison and later [Thembinkosi] Lorch.

"Domination was on our side but football is not about dominating, the result is what matters," the former Uganda coach concluded.
