Rustenburg - Jomo Cosmos coach Jomo Sono revealed his delights of sharing the spoils with the Absa Premiership reigning champions Kaizer Chiefs, citing that the result will be a confidence booster for his charges going forward.

Ezinkosi held the Phefeni Glamour Boys in an entertaining league encounter to a goalless stalemate at the Olen Park Stadium.

The 'Black Prince of Soweto' praised his troops for their hard work and bravery, insisting that despite not having quality players in his squad, Ezinkosi will continue to produce good results due to the amount of effort they will put to each of their coming games.

“To be honest playing against Chiefs and creating lots of chances and also drawing against them is what we have been doing for the last six games," said Sono.

“Tonight (Tuesday) we created plenty of chances and we also defended so well and getting a draw against Chiefs will give confidence to our players.

“I’m happy with a draw and we have worked so hard for it. Our players are hard workers and we’ll be playing like this for the remainder of the season.

“We don’t have quality players in our team, so we have to replace that with hard work.

"And credit must go to the boys, I’m proud of them and I’m sure that the supporters were not disappointed with the performances of both teams.”

Cosmos remains flirting with relegation occupying the 14th spot while the Amakhosi are on the 5th place.
