Spireites: Chesterfield striker looks to kick on after rediscovering scoring touch

Eoin Doyle hopes his goal against York City on Tuesday night will act as a springboard for the rest of the season.

The Chesterfield striker bagged the first early on against the Minstermen before Gary Roberts doubled the lead at Bootham Crescent.

It was Doyle’s first goal for the club since the two he bagged away at Morecambe at the beginning of October - some 18 games ago.

And the 25-year-old said it felt good to get back amongst the goals.

He said: “I remember getting slipped through and think the centre half made a mistake. I took a gamble on it, hit it early and thankfully it went in.

“It’s been a while, it’s nice to kick it out, and hopefully I can kick on now and get a few more.”

Doyle has started the last two games for Chesterfield who have impressed in their last two outings against Northampton Town and York.

“I think in both games we have started really well and blown both teams away,” he said. “We scored early and set a tempo for the game. Second half we changed it, it got a bit uglier, but we saw it out and it seems to be working for us.”

He got his chance when the club’s top scorer, Marc Richards, missed the trip to Sixfields through suspension.

And Doyle will be hoping to get the nod in attack again when Bristol Rovers come to town on Saturday.

He added: “We’re all on a high now for the rest of the week and we look forward to the weekend. We’ll have to go and attack again and hopefully get three points.”
