Doyle - Connor the man

Striker says everyone at Wolves is delighted with appointment

Kevin Doyle: Scored in Wolves' fightback from two goals down to draw at Newcastle inspired by new boss Terry Connor

Kevin Doyle insists the Wolves players are rallying around new boss Terry Connor in a bid to get him the job on a permanent basis.

Connor, 49, has been given the role until the end of the season following the recent sacking of Mick McCarthy and in his first match in charge masterminded his side's comeback to draw 2-2 at Newcastle.

And Doyle revealed his appointment was so welcome it has given everyone at the club a much-needed boost in their fight against the drop.

Doyle told the Birmingham Mail: "We all hugged him afterwards because everyone was so happy to get something from the game.

"That's because a lot of really nice people work for this club and as players we need to keep this team in the Premier League.

"We've a lot of responsibility on our shoulders and all we've done with this draw is give ourselves a chance.

"The management have done the rounds but it's nice that they have appointed from within.

"That gives all the other staff at Wolves a massive lift, to know that if you do well you get a chance.

"Everybody knows Terry and we are 100 per cent behind him.

"TC has been the manager for the last two weeks anyway and has been taking the training so there hasn't been a big shift in anything."
