Newly-promoted Pahang, who found themselves top of the table after racking up victories in their opening three games, were downed 3-2 by Selangor at the Shah Alam Stadium at the weekend.
After Amri Yahyah had given Selangor a two-goal lead with a clinical double, Tok Gajah found themselves level before the break thanks to goals from Fauzi Roslan and Razman Roslan, although it was not to be for the visitors as a late header from Ramzul Zahini handed their opponents all three points.
Nonetheless, Dollah believes his side can still be proud of the way they battled against the Red Giants.
"Although we managed to fight our way back into the match, we lacked composure in the last few minutes and paid the price for it," he told the New Straits Times.
"But overall, both teams played well. I am proud of how the Pahang players performed.
"If we can keep up this pattern of play, we can go far."
Although they ended up on the winning end, Selangor were left to count the cost of Saturday's win as key duo Bunyamin Umar and K. Gurusamy both picked up injuries and are now doubts for Tuesday's trip to Perak, along with winger S. Kunanlan.
Still, Red Giants coach Irfan Bakti insists his side will be going all out for another win when they visit Seladang.
"Against Perak, we will have to see how many players are still left standing because of injuries after having to play three games in a week," he said.
"Of course we want to go there to repeat the success of our last away game against Terengganu and come home with three points."
Pahang, on the other hand, will be looking to get back to winning ways when they entertain struggling Terengganu.
