Cape Town - Keagan Dolly hopes his brace for Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday is the start of a more prolific side to his game, having previously failed to flatter in front of goal.

The South Africa Under-23 midfielder managed just one goal for Ajax Cape Town last term, but seems to be finding his feet with the Brazilians after scoring both goals in the 2-0 win over Jomo Cosmos at the weekend.

And the 22-year-old is hopeful of using his double as a springboard to more goals this term, telling KickOff: "It's been coming. I haven't been scoring for my team, but I'm happy I got them today and let's hope I keep on scoring."

Sunday's win came as a big boost to both Sundowns and head coach Pitso Mosimane, who has come under immense pressure from the fans, who even called for his sacking during last week's win over Ajax Cape Town.

But Dolly hopes their successive league wins can help earn his boss some reprieve, adding: "We haven't been doing well in the League, but we never gave up. We kept on fighting and it's paid off.

"It (fans calling for Pitso's head) doesn't have much impact on us because we focus on our goal and we're working towards it, so we'll keep on pushing.

"We thank the supporters that came out today and for not giving up on us."
