Doyle heaps praise

Latics’ striker Eoin Doyle scored twice in the demolition derby over Rochdale but was quick to praise his manager. Doyle 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.”

“It was probably the best goal I’ve scored. 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. It’s not for me to make a decision on [my future]. 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.”
