Doyle confident over fitness
Wolves striker Kevin Doyle is confident he will be “100 per
cent” fit by the time the squad reports back for pre-season
Doyle aggravated the medial knee ligament injury which sidelined
him for two months during the penultimate game of the campaign
He was duly ruled out of the Republic of Ireland’s Carling
Nations Cup clashes with Northern Ireland and Scotland plus the
Euro 2012 qualifier against Macedonia.
But Doyle is optimistic he will be firing on all cylinders when
preparations begin for the new campaign.
The former Reading player said: “I came in for a week at the end
of the season and will pop in a couple of times again just to keep
an eye on it. “But I’ll be 100 per cent for pre-season. I’m sure
“It was a bit frustrating to come back at Sunderland and tweak
the knee it again but it will be fine.
“I was fine for 10 minutes when I came on. I was enjoying it and
felt really good.
“But then I stubbed my toe which is the worst thing you can do
with a medial knee injury and it aggravated it.
“It set me back for a couple of weeks but I’m sure I’ll be fine
