Our lack of goals wor­ries me, says Bucs’ coach

Pi­rates forced to rely on Qalinge

Sowetan - - Sport - By Sihle Nde­bele

Although Or­lando Pi­rates are in the quar­ter­fi­nals of the Telkom Knock­out, coach Mi­lutin “Mi­cho” Sre­do­je­vic is aware that they need to find so­lu­tions to their goal-scor­ing woes if they are to be a force to be reck­oned with.

Pi­rates nar­rowly beat La­montville Golden Arrows 1-0 to book their berth in the last eight of the com­pe­ti­tion at the week­end, with in-form winger Thabo Qalinge find­ing the cru­cial goal in Dur­ban.

Since the be­gin­ning of this sea­son, the Soweto giants have only man­aged to score more than one goal in a match once, dat­ing back to last month’s 2-2 league draw against Polok­wane City.

Fol­low­ing their vic­tory over Arrows – which was the KwaZulu-Natal side’s first de­feat this sea­son – Sre­do­je­vic ad­mit­ted that their blunt­ness in front of goal is wor­ry­ing.

“We cre­ate many chances but can­not con­vert them. To­day [Satur­day] we won the game but I ac­cept that it is (scor­ing only one goal)
