Jonevret maintain the positive attitude he has had in the last two game in charge, the Swede collected his third point in as many game for the Bucaneers when they cma eback from a goal down to find the equaliser.

“Positive again, for the third game in a row. Character: good. I think we have shown to ourselves now that we can play at the same level of the top teams, like SuperSport and Kaizer Chiefs,” Jonevret told SuperSport TV cameras after the match,

“But of course we want to win games, but I think today you could see it was two tired teams, I think especially for us, it was a lot of energy and the derby against Kaizer Chiefs takes a lot of energy from you.

“Maybe I should have put in some other players, but I’m also learning, it’s my first two weeks down here, but I’m happy that we came back [from a goal down] again and I’m happy that we can show everyone that we are at the same level as the top teams.”
