Jomo Cosmos goalkeeper Sherwyn Naicker dedicated his man-of-the-match award to Jomo Sono after keeping a clean sheet against Orlando Pirates on Saturday night.
Naicker impressed in a 1-0 victory over Bucs, notably saving a 35th minute penalty by Lehlohonolo Majoro at Olen Park.
The former Milano United keeper thanked Ezenkosi boss Sono for keeping faith in his abilities.
"It's an amazing feeling. I don't think you can forget these moments, getting a draw against Chiefs and a win over Pirates," said Naicker, referring to the goalless stalemate with Kaizer Chiefs on October 20.
"I don't think it was the weather, I think it's just rising to the occasion. I didn't have too many good games previously and 'Bra J' [Sono] kept confidence in me and this is just to reward his confidence in me."
Cosmos' defeat of Pirates saw the PSL returnees move four points clear of the relegation zone after 15 games.
