Doyle inspired by Solbakken

Kevin Doyle has revealed Stale Solbakken’s words of wisdom were

on his mind as he embarked on his lung-busting run for Wolves’

third goal in Saturday’s 4-1 win at Bristol City.

Doyle had already found the net from close range to put

Wanderers 2-0 up at Ashton Gate when he picked up the ball just

outside his own penalty area.

The Republic of Ireland international striker embarked on a

lengthy counter which took him past two City defenders and all the

way into the Robins penalty area, where he finished low across

goalkeeper Tom Heaton.

And Doyle has revealed the part boss Solbakken played in his


“I was pleased with my second goal,” he told Wolves’ official


“The manager has been on at me a fair bit to run more with the

ball and take people on more, and maybe that was in my head.

“Sylv (Ebanks-Blake) made a good run and took one or two

defenders away and it opened up for me.”
