Doyle's Fitness Relief

7 January 2016

Stopper Glad To Be Back

Colin Doyle hopes his injury woes are a thing of the past and that he’s now in for a strong second half of the season. 

The stopper returned from an ankle injury, which kept him out for two months, and impressed in last weekend’s defeat at Burton Albion.

Now over his second lengthy injury layoff, the goalkeeper is determined to kick-on and add to his 15 appearances so far.

“Doing my ankle and being out for eight weeks was frustrating, that’s the hardest part about being a footballer,” he revealed.

“I came to most of the games when I was injured and didn’t like watching it, but I soon got back and hopefully I’ll see my rewards in the games.

“I’ve worked hard and I’m back to full fitness so hopefully I can play for the rest of the season and push on.”

The Irishman is expecting to keep his place for Saturday’s clash with Port Vale and feels Blackpool aren’t far off a decent run of form.

“It’s a tough league and we’ve got to try and be more consistent. We’ve got to put a few wins together and not have the losing runs that we’ve been on. 

“I hope we can win two or three and go on another run, rather than win a few then lose three or four. We’ve lost two so hopefully on Saturday we can start a bit of a winning run,” he added.
