Orlando Pirates interim coach Eric Tinkler said morale will climb following his players' hard-fought 1-0 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns on Tuesday night.
Bucs, who recently lost the reverse tie, ended a three-game winless streak in the League courtesy of Man of the Match Khethokwakhe Masuku's 37th minute goal at Loftus Stadium.
Tinkler said: "This will lift morale very high.
"We always knew we could get a positive result against them, it was just about turning that corner.
"In some games we have been creating alot of chances and not converting, while in other games we have not been creating.
"We were excellent in the first half, and the work-rate was phenomenal.
"The boys kept going, and I am extremely proud of them today."
