Kevin Doyle: Wolves striker looking to repay fans after successive relegations

The Republic of Ireland international scored his first goal of the season in the win over Swindon at the weekend, after being linked with a move away from the club for much of the summer.

But Doyle, who turns 30 on Wednesday, is more than happy to still be at Molineux.

"I wanted to be part of a winning team and have a season where we're in contention for something, because it's been a while for us who are still here at Wolves since that's happened," Doyle told the Express and Star.

"If I was going to leave it was going to have to be for something rather exciting because I felt this was going to be an exciting year at Wolves.

"It wasn't a case of looking to leave just for the sake of leaving.

"We've had our bad years but hopefully the only way is up.

"I don't want to sound corny, but the plan is to give something back and try to get promoted.

"The supporters have been fantastic to me after two tough seasons.

"When you see people sticking by you and want you to do well."
