Cape Town - Despite being down in 11th place in the National First Division (NFD), and with games fast running out, Jomo Cosmos supremo Jomo Sono is confident of promotion to the top flight. 

Ezenkosi are nine points behind Stellenbosch FC, who occupy the last promotion play-off place on the NFD table.

Catching them seems unlikely, especially with the season nearing it's conclusion. Nevertheless, Sono is sure he can guide his charges back to the Absa Premiership. 

"I am confident we'll make it," the Cosmos owner-coach told the SowetanLIVE website.

"I've always been confident. Even when I got relegated I was confident! If I'm not confident then who is going to be?"

Cosmos went down in dramatic fashion on the last day of last season's campaign, and their bid to return to the top flight has not been as successful as the club owner has expected it to be.
