Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Keagan Dolly felt their game plan worked like a charm after they saw off SuperSport United 3-1 in the Telkom Knockout semi-finals on Saturday.

The Brazilians winger ended this weekend's clash as the man of the match, but felt their tactical decision to focus on United's Michael Boxall paid huge dividends.

"Credit must go to the coach and my team-mates," said Dolly after the game.

"They have been working hard and it showed by our performance against SuperSport.

"We saw (Michael) Boxall is a bit slow, so I stayed wide and tried my best to get behind him and get crosses into the box.

"It paid off and we got the goals."

Looking ahead to next month's TKO final against Kaizer Chiefs, who saw off Orlando Pirates on penalties in the other semi, Dolly added: "It is going to be my first final and I am excited," added Dolly.

"I'm sure my team-mates and the coach is excited as well.

"This is for the supporters and all the Sundowns people."
