Jomo Cosmos goal-hero Mxolisi Macuphu felt hard work paid off after he fired in a stunner to ensure his side beat Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 on Tuesday night.
Macuphu picked the ball up from Michiam Mhone about 35 yards from goal and hit an instinctive left-footed shot on the bounce that arrowed into the top-right corner.
Chiefs coach Steve Komphela felt the strike was lucky and could probably not be repeated, nevertheless man of the match Macuphu was delighted.
“It's a blessing to play such a big game and score such a wonderful goal but if you work hard and believe in yourself, such things happen,” he told SuperSport after the game.
“We still go and fight and the big man Jomo keeps pushing us every day. All we need is one chance. Jomo wasn't panicking at all at half-time. He just told us to keep working hard.
“We need to concentrate considering our position on the table. We need these chances, and if we utilise them, surely we would survive.”
