The Soweto giants missed out on top spot after they were held to a goalless draw by Arrows on Wednesday evening.

“We played against a very organised team,” Sredojevic told SuperSport TV.

“We intended to have a patient build up, from that patient build up to have as many entries into the final third. From entrances into the last third it has a domino effect of creating the chances and scoring. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be.

“Arrows defended in numbers. It was in our homework to move that ball faster than what they are shifting and defending.

“We did not plant players in the right angle or in the right areas. This would have created more chances and with creating more chances something would have 100% entered the goal with the law of averages.

“We shall pick up the pieces and analyse this game critically, and we shall improve for our next match against AmaZulu on Saturday.

“At the end of the match we only had two defensive players and threw everything up front, but unfortunately it was not meant to be.

"We have to give credit to our opponent who defended very well and gave us limited chances from which we didn't convert.”
