Doyle delighted to be back amongst the goals

SWINDON TOWN extended their lead at the top of League Two to three points following a 2-0 win over Scunthorpe United thanks to an Eoin Doyle brace. Total Sport Swindon's Rajan Hothi spoke to the Town goalscorer following the victory.

Goals either side of half-time from Eoin Doyle saw Swindon run out justified winners, but the performance left a lot to be desired.

Doyle revealed post-match that the team felt their performance wasn't up to the standards they have set themselves this season. 

"It wasn't a great performance, it was very flat throughout the game," stated the Irishman.

"We managed to create the better chances, get the goals and pick up the three points which is a sign of a good team.

"It's been a tough three or four weeks as the conditions weren't great, but we were picking up results which is a great sign.

"It was nice to get the ball down today and play to our strengths, but there were lulls in our performance and we've been let know of that so hopefully against Forest Green we can step it up," he stated.  

Since signing on a permanent deal from Bradford City in January, Doyle failed to find the net until Tuesday night where he added his 24th and 25th goal of the season.

However, the 31-year-old revealed he doesn't care if he scores again this season as his main aim is helping Town get over the line and secure promotion to League One. 

"It was great to get back on the scoresheet and I'm delighted," said Doyle. 

"I don't care if I don't score for the rest of the season now as long as we get over the line.

"My tally is high already, and I just want to go out there and win."

Forest Green Rovers make the short trip to Swindon on Saturday, in what is a huge month for the Robins as they play a further seven games in March.

But after notching a brace in the reverse fixture, Doyle feels that he has no advantage going into the game. 

"Every game is different and I'm sure they will have me in mind when they're training this week," he stated.

"I'll let the lads do their thing and find me in the box.

"We've been top for a long time now, we're just trying to do our thing and keep ticking the games off.

"Hopefully we can keep going, and it's a massive month for us now as we have a lot of games coming thick and fast.

"I think having a lot of games will help us as we'll be able to get our momentum back," explained Doyle.

Doyle worked under Wellens at Oldham back in 2017, and it looks like League Two's top goalscorer will be working under him for the foreseeable future as Wellens put pen to paper on a new deal that sees him remain at SN1 until 2023. 

The Irishman stated how big of a boost the news is to the squad due to the importance Wellens has to the club. 

"It's great that he's signed and he's probably the biggest asset the club has so it's good to get him tied down," said Doyle.

"I've worked with him before and he knows his stuff as everyone can see here.

"I saw him at Oldham and there were circumstances there that killed that, but he knows football and sees things that I can't see.

"He explains things very well and his man-management is very good so he's massive for the club."
