Pirates showcased their intent from the onset against Celtic – eventually pulling away from their opposition in the second half – but despite the win, head coach Milutin Sredojevic believes there is still plenty of room for improvement.
“We wanted to control the game and then we conceded against the run of play from a set-piece. Going into halftime, we tried to convince the team that we could win this,” said Sredojevic.
“We looked at the first half, they had advantages on the left flank. We turned to a 4-2-3-1 and from that moment, we started taking the game to our opponents.
“It was far from the performance we are looking for but it was the first match of the season,” he concluded.
