The Buccaneers secured their fifth Carling Black Label Cup after goals from Augustine Mulenga and Thembinkosi Lorch secured a 2-0 win over Kazier Chiefs on Saturday afternoon.

Pirates supporters were also treated to a few new faces as Fortune Makaringe, Bongani Sam and Gabadinho Mhango made their first appearances in a Soweto derby.

When asked by SuperSport about the new arrivals, the Serbian replied,"We are very happy that they have started on a winning note.

"They are still very far from just walking in to the team. But they have experienced the atmosphere and this should motivate them.

"We want winning to become a habit."

Despite claiming the victory on the day, Sredojevic insists there is still work to be done ahead of the Absa Premiership opening in two weeks.

"We succeeded in keeping a clean sheet against a team that threw everything at us and took a lot of risks going 2-0 down," he added.
 
"The most important thing after five weeks of preparation is that we have won. This will be an injection of motivation for us.
 
"We are far from having a right competitive shape. There is a lot of work to be done. We are a work in progress. But there is no better thing than beating Chiefs and getting that injection of confidence. We must critically look at the things we need to improve on.
