Eoin Doyle: “We Deserved That”

19 March 2016

Goalscorer Eoin Doyle spoke to PNE PlayerHD on a point he believed was well-earned.

The Lilywhites fell behind as early as the fourth minute when Sebastian Polter put QPR in front, but North End battled back to ensure their unbeaten home record stretched to five games.

Doyle left it late to grab his second goal in two games, heading home in injury time to earn Preston a point Doyle believed was justified. 

“We controlled most parts of the game, so I think we more than deserved a point today,” he said.

“We kept grinding them down; it was great work between Gally [Paul Gallagher] and Greg [Cunningham]. It was a terrific ball in and I managed to get on the end of it.

“I haven’t played as much as I’d have liked, but I have to stay ready and it’s important for me to grab my opportunity.

“We could have even have took the lead late on; they defended well on the day so I think maybe a draw is a fair result.”

On the return of fellow striker, Jermaine Beckford, the Irishman added: “You know how big a player he is when you hear that roar and the applause when he was warming up and coming on. 

“I’ve seen him put in the hard work over the last few months and I’m glad he’s back. He deserves his chance and hopefully he can get in the goals towards the end of the season.”
