Keagan Dolly believes he is getting used to Montpellier teammates

Former Mamelodi Sundowns star Keagan Dolly revelled in the performance of new side Montpellier as they brushed aside Nancy on Saturday.

La Paillade made easy work of Nancy as they cruised to a 3-0 win that propelled them to 11th in Ligue 1 and Dolly was particularly impressed with how his side worked as a unit. 

"I think it was a good team effort. We worked hard as a team. We defended well and we were attacking well as a team and you could see by the result of the game," Dolly told a club reporter after the match. 

"We haven't been doing well as a team playing away from home. I'm happy to be part of the team and helping them succeed."

The 24-year-old believes that he is gradually growing more comfortable with his new teammates as he continues to adjust to life in the French top flight.

Dolly also made reference to his first appearance for the club when they succumbed to league leaders Monaco in a 2-1 defeat at home.

"I think I'm quite used to my teammates now and the nerves have settled," he said. "I think in the first game against Monaco I was a bit nervous in the first half but I think in the second half we played much better as a team and you could see that it was building up to coming here and giving this performance.

"Credit must go out to the little supporters that came out to watch us and the whole team and the technical staff. It was a team effort and we are just happy to have the three points."

Despite the win Montpellier are only four points clear of the drop-zone and have a tough outing against fifth place Saint-Etienne next Sunday. 

"We should take each game as it comes. Our next objective is to beat Saint-Etienne at home and I think it is possible. With the way we played tonight if we continue that form in front of our supporters I think we can manage a win," Dolly concluded.
