DOYLE ON DEBUT

30 September 2014

Newest recruit happy with Town bow

Nathan Doyle believes there is more to come from him and the Hatters this season after the midfielder enjoyed a winning debut against Oxford on Saturday.

The 27-year-old, who signed a one-year deal at Kenilworth Road earlier this month, played over an hour as the Town ran out 2-0 winners to make it four games unbeaten in Sky Bet League 2.

And the former Bradford and Barnsley man was pleased with the display on his first appearance for the Hatters.

“I’m happy we got the winner and I’m happy to get through 65 minutes,” Doyle told Hatters Player after the win over the U’s .

“My fitness is okay. I played in the development squad for 70 minutes last week and I’ve been training with the lads for three weeks.

“It’s been intense, I’ve being doing extra work with the fitness coach [Dave Richardson], and all I’m lacking his game-time, but it won’t be long before I’m full ahead of steam.”

Doyle was part of the Bradford side that won the League 2 Play-Offs two seasons ago, and the midfielder thinks the Town have got what it takes to mount a promotion challenge this season.

“The team are doing well, we’re 10 games in and we know what we’ve got to do to get where we want to be,” continued Doyle.

“We just need to focus on one game at a time. It was a great result against Oxford, and to keep another clean sheet was excellent.

“Clean sheets are important, especially in this league. It stands you in good stead and gives you something to build on.

“We’ll keep listening to the gaffer and if we give him what he wants we can’t go far wrong.”
