STRIKER Eoin Doyle has echoed manager Richie Wellens’ sentiments that the rest of the Swindon Town squad deserve credit for the Irishman’s goalscoring exploits.

Doyle struck a hat-trick in last weekend’s 4-0 win away at Crawley Town – taking the on-loan forward’s tally to 13 goals in 13 League Two games for Swindon.

Anthony Grant, Dion Donohue and Keshi Anderson all provided an assist apiece for Doyle at Broadfield Stadium to see him extend his lead at the top of the division’s scoring charts.

The 31-year-old says his red-hot form in the final third is a testament to the quality of service he receives from his team-mates.

“It is not me, it is the lads around me. They are able to put the ball on a six-pence,” said Doyle, who is on a season-long loan at Town from League Two rivals Bradford City.

“You saw Keshi’s weight of pass for the third goal, it is very hard to find a player who can do that.

“It is the service. The lads are great, they know where I am. Every time I look up, I am confident they are going to put the ball in the right areas. It is a dream for me.

“When you have got talent like that around you and players who put balls into the area I like, I have the easy job.”

Doyle’s strike partner Jerry Yates bagged Swindon’s other goal against Crawley to take his own tally to the season to seven.

The Irish forward singled out his attacking colleague for particular praise, stating a good number of his goals are down to the efforts of Yates.

“I think Jerry should be getting more praise than me,” said Doyle.

“I know I have a few more goals but the work he puts in with the runs he makes, he creates a lot for me without people noticing.

“He can play a number of positions. He is a talented boy and he is going to have a great career ahead of him.

“He got his reward last Saturday and I am delighted for him.”

Swindon were in almost total control throughout the 90 minutes against Crawley.

Doyle struck twice in the first half to give Wellens’ side a comfortable cushion and the striker was pleased that there was no let up in intensity after the interval.

“We were expecting a reaction from Crawley but we put it on them straight from the first minute of the second half,” said Doyle.

“We kept going and going – and it paid off. It was a great performance.”
