Chiefs are a ‘work in progress’, says Dolly


Kaizer Chiefs have been slow off the blocks in the new season with one win, a defeat and a draw in their opening three DStv Premiership matches and Chiefs signing Keagan Dolly said the best is yet to come as they are still a ‘work in progress’.

‘Amakhosi’ will be eager to look to bounce back from their 2-0 league loss to Mamelodi Sundowns most recently when they host Royal AM on Saturday afternoon at FNB Stadium (17:00).

“So far so good. We would have liked to win every game that we have played so far but it’s a work in progress,” said Dolly, who is of the view that Chiefs are making steady progress under coach Stuart Baxter.

“Since I’ve been here, I’ve seen that the team is willing to work hard and buy into what the coach is willing to do. On match days, you can see that we are willing to stick to our game plan.

“We are creating chances but need to start scoring them. We can take a lot from the last three games. We know what areas we need to work on and are improving in training,” added Dolly.

The Soweto giants have been creating plenty of goal-scoring opportunities, but poor finishing has let them down and Dolly stated that the strikers are working hard on their finishing at training.

“The strikers are now staying behind in training sessions and working on confidence in front of goal. Every striker that plays football wants to score and I think that the goals will come once we make a habit of scoring in training,” he concluded.
