Striker happy to be reunited with Blues boss

Eoin Doyle leapt at the chance to work with Paul Cook again.

The striker played under the Blues boss during successful spells with Sligo and Chesterfield, winning the League Two title with the latter.

Now the pair have linked up for a third time, with Doyle arriving on loan from Preston on transfer deadline day.

And Doyle hopes they can combine to achieve yet more success at Fratton Park.

He said: “When I heard that the manager was keen on signing me again I jumped at the opportunity.

“I’ve scored 25 goals a season twice in my career and both times I was playing under him.

“I obviously played alongside Gary Roberts at Chesterfield as well and he was a major contributor of the goals I scored, so hopefully that can happen again.

“On paper this team is good enough to win promotion and I want to add something to help get us over the line.

“I haven’t watched many Pompey games this season, so I can’t compare myself to the other strikers, but I’ll give nothing less than 100 per cent.”

Doyle could make his Blues bow at Wycombe on Saturday, but he is particularly looking forward to performing at Fratton Park for the first time.

He said: “I’ve played here before and there’s a passionate crowd – to have that many fans in this division is remarkable.

“It’s fantastic to see that they’ve got a great love for the club and I can’t wait to play in front of them.”
