Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic feels that the 3-1 win over SuperSport was the most comprehensive display his men have delivered this season.

Bucs have not had a bad start to the new season, yet they had not appeared to be firing on all cylinders in the same way they did in the closing months of the previous campaign.

However, it all came together on Saturday night in Soweto as the Sea Robbers held off a tough challenge from an on-form SuperSport side to record a convincing victory and move to third on the table.

It was also the first time in 10 games they have managed to beat Matsatsantsa, as well as a second successive league win, and Sredojevic was delighted with the all-round display from his charges.

"The document is not valid unless it has a stamp and signature," the Serbian said after the game.

"In other words, in all six matches this season we have played very well. We had the document. However the signature and stamp was not there.

"Tonight we went with the intention to write the document - to play good football. To sign the document - to protect our goal. And to put the stamp - scoring the goal or goals in order to win the game.

"The good is that this is our first win here at Orlando Stadium."

Sredojevic will now be expecting his side to keep the momentum going when they take on Cape Town City on Wednesday night in another home match.

"The good is that on the wings from the confidence of this win tonight we can correct what is wrong and keep up what was good going into the next set of matches that we have starting with Cape Town City on Wednesday," he said.
