Eoin Doyle On Top Form

Eoin Doyle spoke to Spireites Player after his two penalties saw Chesterfield beat Rochdale 2-1 at the Proact Stadium.

The striker has already scored four goals in three games so far this season and recently signed a one-year contract extension.

Doyle said: “It’s been a great start to the season, personally for me as well as the team having back to back wins. Myself and the family are very settled here. I’m enjoying my football here and I'm delighted to have signed for an extra year.”

The Irishman praised his teammates, in particular Gary Roberts and Jay O’Shea, for the clever play that led to both penalties being awarded and revealed that playing in Sky Bet League 1 has helped the side play with a pleasing style of football.

He said: “Jay showed his magic as he does and it was a stone wall penalty. I managed to put it into the bottom corner and I don’t know if the keeper got a hand to it but I think it was convincing enough. It was the same for the second one; the keeper got a hand on it but it just had a bit too much on it for him to keep it out. To win the second one Roberts put a great ball for me down the side and the player just clipped me and took me down.

“This year it’s just opened up a bit more and it’s given the three lads behind me a lot of space and they’re doing great things there.”

Having been knocked out of the Capital One Cup in midweek by Huddersfield Town after giving away a two-goal lead the team was determined to hold on for the win this time around.

The striker said: “We watched the Huddersfield game back and we looked very convincing up until the last few minutes and it was a shame it happened like that but we’ve got strong character in this team and we came out today and it didn’t affect us.

“Tommy is a bit disappointed he couldn’t get a clean sheet at home in the first game of the season and it would have been nice to get a clean 2-0 win but we’re happy enough with the three points.”

Doyle will be hoping he can build on his already sizeable goal tally when MK Dons visit the Proact on Tuesday night.
