Doyle | ‘We’ve got to get on with it’

Tommy Doyle insist Wolves need to ‘move on’ from their controversial defeat to West Ham United on Saturday and quickly turn their attention to this weekend’s meeting with Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder was a key part of a positive first half from Wolves against the Hammers, playing in an unusual attacking role for the first time under Gary O’Neil, but although Doyle enjoyed the new position, he was left frustrated and disappointed not to come away with at least a point after another contentious VAR decision went against the Old Gold.

On the controversial end to the West Ham match

“Obviously, it was wrong, but what can we do? It’s been the same for a while, so obviously it’s frustrating, but the ref’s decision is final and we’ve got to get on with it.

“Me saying stuff now isn’t going to change all that or help the cause. It is what it is and we’ve just got to move on.”

On refocusing attention to Forest

“It happens. It is what it is. These things happen. We’ll have a few days off now to rest and then we’ll go again against Forest.”

On playing in a more attacking role

“I enjoyed it. I liked that position. It was good to be up there and helping. There are things we can improve on but there are also things that we did well, but obviously the result was frustrating.

“I’m happy with the way I’ve been playing, of course, but I want to win games. If you play well and lose, it’s not a good feeling, so we’ve got to move on and go again against Forest.”

On European dreams still alive

“Of course [he’s still got hopes of Europe]. We’re obviously going to keep pushing, but we’re not solely thinking about that, but when you’re in and around it you want to push, so we’ll see what happens.”
