Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer felt his side were made to pay for a lack of cutting edge in front of goal as they were held to a 1-1 draw by TS Galaxy on Tuesday.
The Buccaneers drew first blood in the first half through Bongani Sam but the Rockets quickly rallied from behind to level the scores a few minutes later.
And Zinnbauer highlighted a combination of factors that resulted in his side walking away from Tuesday's encounter with just one point for their troubles.
He says Pirates "need another striker" to convert the chances they have been creating.
"We started the game well, we took our opportunity but then it's one cross and we're asleep in the defence, not one player alone, one, two, three players," Zinnbayer told SuperSport TV.
"Then we work on this, we do our best but in the end we hit the post, the chances that we had, in the moment we don't score but if you don't have goals you don't win the game.
"We can't change the world, we don't have a striker what we need. [Deon Hotto] did a good work coming from the wing but we need another striker."
He continued: "You can feel this, you can feel in the box the typical striker like Lepasa, Mabasa, 'Gaba' [Mhango] you have not.
"But we can't change the world we do our best, Lorch in the last minute so close [to scoring], you see [Bongani] Sam made the goal, a full-back.
"We found the system for this but it's always a foot between the ball and a goal, we have a little bit unlucky in the moment we cannot change, we have to focus on the next game, we have to work on it."
