Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic refused to accept that their last-gasp 1-0 win over Bidvest Wits in Milpark on Saturday was an undeserved one on an afternoon they showed little appetite to reproduce the kind of attacking football they had dished out against Mamelodi Sundowns on Monday.
Pirates’ win‚ courtesy of an injury time own goal by Wits left back Keagan Ritchie‚ saw Bucs move to the top of the Absa Premiership table on goal difference to Sundowns‚ but the Brazilians still have an advantage of a match in hand.
“Look‚ I will disagree with saying this was a stolen win‚” said an elated Bucs coach.
“Right at the death we have won. I don’t believe that this victory was stolen‚ I believe that we deserved it because that’s what football Gods are paying us for all the draws we have played.
“This is how sometimes football Gods are taking from you. Football takes time.”
Sredojevic said it was always going to be difficult to beat Wits as they had come to Milpark knowing they had last beaten them at their compact venue in 2013.
