Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic focused on the positives following their clash with Highlands Park on Saturday.

 

The Buccaneers had to fight back to hold the Lions of the North to a 2-2 draw in an entertaining Premier Soccer League (PSL) match at the Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa.

 

“A very tough game, when you play against Highlands Park and everyone has seen this is their 16th match – same like ours – that you need to outfight them. Have the spirit of never giving up [the same as them] as the first platform,” Sredojevic stated.

 

Highlands Park took the lead twice through Sphiwe Mahlangu and Peter Shalulile, but goals from Thembinkosi Lorch and Kudakwashe Mahachi helped Pirates hold the hosts.

 

However, it has been revealed that Orlando Pirates coach, Milutin Sredojevic is on his way to further strengthen his defense with the signing of two Chiefs defenders.

 

According to reports, Chiefs are still yet to respond to Pirates on their request to have two of their defender signed in this January transfer window.

Speaking to the media, Bobby Mutaung stated that the request is still on and that they are looking t the possibility of letting the two defenders join them this January.

All effort to get the names of the affected players were abortive as the two club refuse to reveal their names to media.
