Doyle sidelined for eight weeks

The Republic of Ireland frontman suffered the injury during his

country’s win over Macedonia on Saturday and has returned to the

Midlands for treatment. The club have not given up hope of Doyle

featuring again this season, but the head of their medical

department, Steve Kemp, told the club website: “The scan has

confirmed that Kevin has torn his medial collateral ligament. “We

will be working with Kevin to get him back as quickly as the injury

allows but the likely time span is anywhere between four and eight

weeks.”
