Doyle backs Wolves to make serious push for cup glory

kevin doyle believes Wolves are capable of achieving Carling Cup glory after breaking his scoring duck with a match-changing contribution against Notts County on Tuesday, WRITES JOHN CURTIS.

Doyle came off the bench at the start of extra-time to score twice and set up another goal for Steven Fletcher in a 4-2 home win which secured a place in the last 16.

The Ireland striker, Wolves' top scorer last season with nine goals, feels Mick McCarthy's side have the strength in depth to aim for more than just Premier League survival.

Doyle said: "Lots of teams change their teams in the Carling Cup. We changed our team but, if you get through the next round, all of a sudden you are very far in the competition.

"Lots of big teams have been knocked out already. It is an opportunity for us to maybe go far. We are only a few games from Wembley.

"We've a bigger and stronger squad and everyone wants to play, so being in the cup keeps people playing games as well."
