Doyle Praises Manager Richie Wellens Following Win Against Rochdale

19 November 2017

Striker Eoin Doyle was quick to praise manager Richie Wellens after his brace secured a derby day win over Rochdale.

He netted twice in the final 10 minutes of the game, his second a volley from 30 yards, to secure the own and he hailed Wellens for the way he sets the team out to play.

He said: “It was a great win and great to get three points in the derby. It was enjoyable to get over the line in the end.

“The gaffer has put great confidence in me and the forward players.

“He lets us do our thing. If you miss a chance, he just says go again and that’s what you want. We are scoring a lot of goals recently so it’s great.

“Davies is great for me and so is Aaron Holloway. Everyone is chipping in and it’s great for the attacking players.”

Where does that goal rank in Eoin Doyle’s favourites?

“It was probably the best goal I’ve scored,” he admitted.

“Johny went long to Aaron, he flicked it on and I saw the goalkeeper off his line and I had a go and luckily it went in.”

With January not far away, the striker would not be drawn on his future and wants to concentrate on his football.

“It’s not for me to make a decision on,” he said. “I’ve still got 18 months left at Preston so I have to do what I’m told so we will have to see what happens.

“In the meantime, there is a lot of football still to be played and we need to climb up the table.”
