Another Stern Challenge

Striker expects an exciting game.

Following on from last weekend’s battling victory over Bradford City, Kevin Doyle is expecting another stern challenge when Stevenage come to Molineux on Saturday for what is the inaugural meeting of the two clubs.

The popular striker reflected on last weekend’s win at Valley Parade saying: “We had to dig in. They were very direct and very physical and the crowd were very passionate. They were really up for it for the whole game.

“It was a different test from what we’ve experienced in the season so far. It was the first time that we’ve really come up against a team that was so physical and direct and I think that we dealt with it really well. 

“It’s not easy to get a win there and while it wasn’t our prettiest performance, I think that we deserved to win.

“We’ve all been mixed around in different formations and different positions. Everyone seems to have a benefit and its exciting for the lads that have been here for a long time to see new people and new faces but whatever way we play I think we look dangerous and reasonably good going forward and defending. There are lots of different combinations and ways that we can play so that can only benefit us.”

One of the pre-game surprises at Bradford was the inclusion of Jamie O’Hara as a substitute. 

Kevin added: “He’s just another very good player to add to our squad. He’s come in and trained every day and done what he was asked to do and now he’s back in. Even though we’ve had a very good start it’s more competition for places and it keeps everyone on their toes.

“If he gets his chance, an opportunity, I think that he will just add to us. He’s played in the Premier League for a number of years and when he’s fit and injury free he’s a quality player.” 

After Wolves’ successful start to the season Kevin admits: “I’ve been enjoying it - in fact I think everyone has been enjoying it. If we are winning or doing well then it’s easy to enjoy it so hopefully we can keep winning and we can all enjoy it.

“Everyone has surprised me in this League. There has been some very good games of football, exciting games of football and I’m sure that they (Stevenage) will be similar. We’ll watch videos of them and see how they play and try and set up ourselves to play well.

“Every game at home so far we’ve had very good crowds and a positive atmosphere. Everyone has been behind us so we need to keep it going and keep at the top of the table.“
