Perez was pleased to see striker Mayuka net his first goal for the club, a year after moving to St Mary's.
"He is working well," said Pérez. "I think he is thinking to use as well as possible the opportunities that at the moment he has. It is great for him and for us that he has scored the first goal. Hopefully it is not the last goal."
