Jabu Mahlangu complementing Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly

The two players made a good combination which led to the team's victory.

The pairing of Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly is crucial for Amakhosi, according to Kaizer Chiefs legend Jabu Mahlangu.

The pair shone as the Soweto giants ended a four-match losing streak in the PSL with a 4-0 victory over Chippa United on Saturday evening.

Dolly was named Man of the Match after scoring a brace in an encounter played at the legendary FNB Stadium, with Billiat assisting on both goals.

Billiat earned an assist after making a run down the left wing and setting up Dolly, who subsequently returned the favor by passing to the Zimbabwean striker after the restart.

"I expected Billiat to fall down because the defender [Vuluyeke Zulu] tried to drag him down, but he [Zulu] failed," Mahlangu said on SuperSport TV.

"Dolly had a great run from the right side of the field, cutting inside, and the finish [for the second goal] is stunning. Dolly scored a fantastic goal."

During their time together at Mamelodi Sundowns, Billiat, Dolly, and Leonardo Castro, who is also on Chiefs' books, established one of Africa's most dangerous strike squads.

They were instrumental in Sundowns winning the PSL and the Caf Champions League in 2016, but they have yet to play together at Chiefs due to Castro's injury.

Mahlangu believes the Dolly and Billiat combination can be essential to Chiefs' success, having forged a devastating combination with Stanton Fredericks at Chiefs during his playing days in the early 2000s.

"The players [their teammates] will be motivated by Dolly and Billiat's understanding." "We don't want to talk like it's just Dolly and Khama [who are doing well]," the former Pirates player continued.

"It's the entire team, but the understanding is there right now since they played together at Sundowns."

"I believe that once they start scoring goals like this and assisting each other, the entire squad will be inspired."

Dolly and Billiat have a total of five goals in the PSL this season after seven games.
