Highlands Park coach Owen Da Gama says his side is still going make it difficult for any team coming to play at Makhulong Stadium this season.
Park stunned log leaders Bidvest Wits 2-1 in Tembisa on Saturday with Peter Shalulile and Mokete Mogaila on target for the home team.
That win helped them climb to position nine on the log with 25 points after 20 games, and Da Gama hailed Shalulile and Mogaila for their fine performances.
"Shalulile is still going to punish many teams moving forward with his pace, and Mogaila with his pace is an unbelievable talent for South Africa, I am happy that we identified him," the coach said.
"Even the last game at Millpark we enjoyed the majority of ball possession but unfortunately we couldn't score. We knew their defence is not quick and we used our pace to get behind them. It was a fantastic game.
"We were crying for this win, we needed this win. What a big win against the log leaders. It's an unbelievable feeling."
Da Gama was encouraged by his side's display and believes his team will go from strength to strength after the win over the Clever Boys.
"We will cause a lot of problems," he added. "Makhulong is not going to be easy to come and play for any team. We don't care who you are. "
Highlands Park are set to travel to Limpopo for their next league game against Black Leopards on February 24.
