The Buccaneers booked their place in the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals after beating Ea Lla Koto 4-1 at the James Motlatsi Stadium in Orkney.
Jonevret had slammed his charges following their 3-2 defeat to Stars in the PSL encounter at the same venue a week ago, but feels the players really came to the party on the night.
"I'm happy because I think we played like a team today," Jonevret said after the encounter.
"We were a little bit unlucky in the first half. We could have had one more to make it 2-0 at half-time, but then they scored from a set-piece," he said.
"Regarding the second half, I'm satisfied. I think we played well and in the first half we were pretty much in control. As I said, we played like a team today," Jonevret added.
"Maybe we (Stars and Pirates) are not the best teams in the league right now so we have to play smart to win games. I think we both played smart and good football," he stressed.
"Makola was out in the last game for example, and we saw what he gave today [Saturday]. So, we have a few that have to be there for the team to play good," he concluded.
