Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic believes that it is possible for the club to redeem themselves in the Absa Premiership even when points are dropped.

The Sea Robbers played out to a 1-1 draw with Highlands Park last Saturday although prior to the encounter hopes were high the side would collect all three points.

In the clash with the Lions of the North, Gladwin Shitolo scored an own goal before Justin Shonga converted a second half penalty to level matters on the night.

Nonetheless, Sredojevic takes the view that dropping two points is acceptable as there are plenty of games remaining to correct the situation.

Speaking to reporters, he said: "Having in mind that this is a marathon of 30 matches, it is not good to be on this side to not have won something like we had planned.

"However, the blessing in disguise is that this is a league where you can still do corrections by way of collecting points when you have dropped some.

"We owe it to our supporters, and I need to put my hand up and say, in a way this is far from being the best that this team can do.

"We believe in the work we're doing, we believe in the players and we know we shall do much better.

"We also believe the support will come even more because we are getting the driving force from our supporters, and we shall still keep on until they are satisfied with results and with the football."
