Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa admits Keagan Dolly was not at his best against Polokwane, but is backing the midfielder to improve as he regains his match sharpness.

Read: Ajax pegged back by City

Dolly, who will link up with Mamelodi Sundowns at the end of the current campaign, missed out on Bafana Bafana squad for the Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea after suffering a broken toe late last year.

He made his long-awaited return to action in midweek as the Urban Warriors played to a 1-1 draw with City.

While De Sa felt that the promising midfielder was somewhat off the pace against Rise and Shine, he backed the player to return to his best in the not-too-distant future.

"I think he was a bit rusty [against City]," De Sa told goal.com.

"He came back pretty good when he came back from injury at the beginning of pre-season.

"He's lost his pace a bit now in the last couple of weeks really. You know, he needs game time, he hasn't played for quite some time as he was injured for about six, seven or eight weeks.

"So he's going to take time to get back to his usual self. I thought today they were quicker than him and he got caught out a few times, but he will play and he will get better."
