'Goals will come for him' - Wolves manager Dean Saunders backs striker Kevin Doyle

The Wolves boss is happy to have players of the calibre of the Irish international in his squad and believes that his form will eventually improve
Newly appointed Wolves manager Dean Saunders has revealed that he has been impressed by Kevin Doyle and said that 'goals will come' for the striker.

The 29-year-old striker has scored just five goals in 25 league appearances this season, but Saunders is confident that Doyle can improve his form.

"I've watched Kevin in training and he's been brilliant the last three days," he told the Irish Independent. "On Tuesday, he was unplayable and he had a right battle with a couple of the young centre-backs. That shows me he wants to do it."

He added: "I think the goals will come for him. If I am picking a player and I know I am going to get the maximum he has got, then you sleep better before the game – and that is what Kevin Doyle gives me."

The Wolves boss also praised injured Irish winger Stephen Hunt, describing the 31-year-old as a player 'of Premier League quality'.

He said: "Stephen Hunt is a player that I am looking forward to working with. I spoke to him on Tuesday and said 'let's see if we can get you fit.'

"He is another player of Premier League quality who has a good attitude. We know that he is good enough," added Saunders.

Wolves currently lie in 18th position in the Championship, with 31 points accrued from 26 games.
