Doyle ready for Keane match-up
31 Jul 2015 09:09
Kevin Doyle plans to get one over on compatriot Robbie Keane when the Irish strikers line up against each other in Major League Soccer on Saturday and hopes his move to the United States will boost his chances of an Ireland call-up. Doyle, who arrived at the Rapids from English side Wolves in May, says his new team are getting the best out of him after finally playing him in his favoured central striker role. Colorado are still dead last in the Western Conference but after three straight wins, with Doyle netting the winner in two of them, they have a realistic chance of clawing their way up the table and into a playoff spot. Portland, with 32 points, currently occupy the sixth and final spot in the play-offs. Colorado are eight points behind. "When I first arrived and was adapting to the team, they played me just behind the striker, however, in the last three games I have been moved up to my best position which is centre forward," he said. "We are playing either a 4-5-1 or a 4-3-3 when in possession. I am the one in the middle, up front on my own, which is my favourite position, so I am enjoying that. "In the first half of the season before I arrived there were a lot of draws and now thankfully we have some very important wins. "We have given ourselves a chance now to sneak into the playoffs, which was everyone's goal at the beginning of the season."
