Doyle off the mark

Published Add your comment

Kevin Doyle is off the mark for Wolves after scoring the opening goal at the Molineux, ensuring two back-to-back wins at the start of the latest Barclays Premier League season.

The Irish international put a missed penalty at Blackburn behind him and forgot all about the previous two troubled seasons that were blighted by injury to stun in the ball from an acute angle against Fulham on Sunday.

"I was disappointed not to score against Blackburn last week when I missed a penalty," he said. "I never seem to score on the first day of the season.

"I've probably never scored in the second one either, it usually takes me four or five weeks, so to get it out of the way is nice and I'm happy with that.

"As a striker you're always told to just go again when you miss a chance and that's what I did.

"I did all the hard work with that first one and then just fell over as I was trying the shot but it was nice to get the goal when I did."


Wolves manager Mick McCarthy was equally delighted that his front man had grabbed a goal, as the West Midlands side went on to win 2-0.

He said: "It was an awesome performance from Doyler.

"Him and Fletch were the epitome of the team - they led from the front and worked the defence really hard.

"And Doyler deserved his goal from a fabulous performance.

"He carved the first opening for himself and a couple of the lads might have been complaining he didn't lay it off but I thought he was right to have the shot.”
