SWINDON Town manager Richie Wellens says Eoin Doyle has already shown exactly why he was so keen to bring the striker to the club this summer.

Irishman Doyle signed a season-long loan deal at the Energy Check County Ground from League Two rivals Bradford City earlier this month, and took his goals tally to three in three games at the weekend with a brace in the 2-2 draw away at Cheltenham Town.

Both of Doyle’s strikes came from instinctive finishes inside the box as he twice finished off crosses from the right from Lloyd Isgrove – the first via a Keshi Anderson flick-on.

Wellens previously worked with Doyle during his tenure as Oldham Athletic manager during the 2017-18 season and has no doubt the 31-year-old will continue to make the most of golden chances, should his team-mates keep serving them up.

“I have tried to get a team that is exciting to watch, that has movement and pace and will create chances,” said Wellens.

“I know that if we make chances, Eoin will be on the end of them.

“It is up to us to keep creating the chances and picking out his movement. Then when he gets those chances, we’re confident he will score them.

“He has three goals in three games and Jerry (Yates) will be back from suspension for Morecambe this weekend, which is a big plus.”

Doyle actually had chances for even more goals at the weekend, with one particularly good chance spurned soon after the Irishman got his second, miscuing an effort wide when collecting in space on the edge of the box.

“He should go through and score,” said Wellens.

“If he relaxes and takes a breath, he will realise the defenders are nowhere near him, so he can open his body up and go either side. He just stabbed at it a little bit and rushed it.”
