Doyle hopeful of ending drought

Doyle, Wolves’ leading scorer last season, has failed to hit the

target in 12 league games this term. But the Republic Of Ireland

international is convinced his luck in front of goal will change

sooner rather than later. He said: “I’ve had spells like this

before. There’s no point being depressed about it. “You have to

wake up tomorrow and try to go again. I’ll keep working hard, keep

doing the right things and my luck will change. “It’s different

when you’re playing in the Championship and you’re top of the

league. You always get chances to score. “But when you’re playing

in a team always going to be fighting in the bottom three, it could

be difficult and you’re not going to score. “Every week you have to

keep going and keep working hard. It’s better playing well than

playing bad and not scoring. Meanwhile, Doyle has called for

international friendlies to follow competitive matches in being

switched from Wednesday to Tuesday evenings. Doyle, in the Republic

squad for the midweek game with Morocco, said: “I’ll be honest,

it’s probably not 100% ideal playing Wednesdays. “We play Wednesday

night and we’ve got an away game with Blackpool, who are massive

competitors for us, on Saturday. “We’ll get back Thursday afternoon

and we barely do a warm-down on Friday because we played on

Wednesday night. “We’re travelling on the bus again on Friday for

Saturday’s game. “I don’t know why they changed the qualifiers to

Tuesday nights – which was a great idea – but left the friendlies

on a Wednesdays. It’s a bit stupid.”
