AFCON

Stuart Baxter has praised Keagan Dolly

Keagan Dolly's current performance has been good staring from the last two games.

After a spectacular performance in a 2-1 win over SuperSport United in a PSL match on Sunday, Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter was happy with his attacker Keagan Dolly.

The 28-year-old assisted Bernard Parker's goals on the stroke of half-time and four minutes after the break at Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium.

Njabulo Ngcobo scored the game's first goal in the second minute of added time, just before the halftime break.

Dolly has three goals and four assists in nine games this season, and his tactician is pleased with his creative player's influence since joining the team in the offseason.

"The last two games, Keagan has been excellent," Baxter said, according to the iDiski Times. "It's easy to say he's been excellent because people see that he gets on the ball, twists and turns, and gets away from people."

"And he pushes people in for 35 metres, and it's obvious to see that with Keagan Dolly, who has played in France, he's coming back now to enhance the PSL, and he's coming back and putting in a real shift in terms of his pushing."

"His pushing technique and energy are both exceptional. People may not notice, but he is providing more genuine performances, not only the eye-catching ones, in my opinion. In the previous two games, he has been outstanding."

At the moment, the Amakhosi coach praised Parker's performance, stating he is a role model for South African players.

With his brace on Sunday, he moved to 60 goals in the PSL, passing Chiefs veteran Siphiwe Tshabalala, who had 58 goals.

"As quoted by Baxter, "I reminded the players that they are grateful to have a senior professional like Parker who puts in the kind of effort he did tonight."

"He scored the three points for us and is an incredible shining example of the type of player we want to cultivate in South Africa.

"Parker is deserving of a spot in the Kaizer Chiefs because he is industrious, humble, a good team player, and responsible in society."

Soweto heavyweights are in fifth place with 12 points after three victories, two draws, and two losses after Sunday's victory.
