Republic of Ireland striker Kevin Doyle has revealed that the reception he received from Wanderers fans at the Molinuex convinced him to stay with Wolves and help in their promotion quest.
Doyle notched his opening goal of the season in Wolves 3-2 win over Swindon which kept their unbeaten start to their League One campaign intact.
The 29-year-old was the subject of daily transfer specualtion during the summer window but is happy to stay with the club and spearhead their promotion push.
“The supporters have been fantastic to me, after two tough seasons,” Doyle told the club website.
“I don’t want to write-off the first two seasons I had here which were fantastic.
“We stayed up in the Premier League which was a great achievement.
“But the last two years have been disappointing. So I must say, those fans have been tremendous to me and they’ve given me great support.
“When I played my first game here this season, after injury, I got a tremendous reception and I really appreciate that.
“When you see people sticking by you and want you to do well, that definitely helps.
“All the players will tell you it makes a big difference. From Day One this season the support has been tremendous.”
“I wanted personally to be part of a winning team and try to have a season where we’re in contention for something, because it’s been a while for all of us who are still here at Wolves since that’s happened.
“I said it wasn’t a case of looking to leave just for the sake of leaving.
“I had an open summer with the club. They knew my situation - I didn’t want to leave for the sake of leaving.
“If I was going to leave it was going to have to be for something rather exciting because I felt this was going to be an exciting year at Wolves.
“We’ve had our bad years but hopefully the only way is up.
“I don’t want to sound corny, but the plan is to give something back and try to get promoted.
“I want to be part of a winning team and have that winning feeling.”
