Doyle Glad To Be Back In The Goals

Striker hoping to start scoring spree after crucial cup strike

8 November 2021

Eoin Doyle was happy to end his ‘barren spell’ and is confident the goals are about to flow again.

Doyle’s opener for Wanderers in their 2-2 FA Cup draw with Stockport County was his first goal from open play since the end of August.

However, the Irishman has weighed in a couple of times from the penalty spot to take his total for the season to five.

And with goals also coming from elsewhere, he is looking forward to adding further to the tally.

“It’s been tough not getting the goals but the lads have been chipping in all round me a bit more so then last year which is great,” said Doyle, who hit the net 19 times last season to spearhead Wanderers’ promotion success.

“It takes a bit of pressure off me and it’s still a very enjoyable team for me to be playing in.

“In that line-up there’s so much talent and it’s exciting, so I fancy myself to get a few more.”

Despite the striker’s goal – which rounded off a stunning move involving Dapo Afolayan and Lloyd Isgrove – the Whites couldn’t get through to round two at the first time of asking.

Doyle admitted the National League side had made it a tough test but is looking to get the job done at the second attempt.

“Obviously we’re disappointed not to get through, but I think they’re a good team,” Doyle added.

“They’ve got a lot of experience there and a lot of lads from higher up the leagues.

“It was a tough game. They did a good job but I think we maybe deserved to get a little bit more out of the game and I’m looking forward to the replay.”

Wanderers will head to Edgeley Park on Tuesday-week for the replay but before that face Crewe Alexandra in an important League One game at the University of Bolton Stadium on Friday night.

“We’re a great bunch of lads and we work hard all week and will prepare ourselves properly for Crewe,” said Doyle.

“It’ll be another tough game on Friday but we’ll work hard through the week and I’ve no doubt we’ll get the result at home.”
