Reading striker Kevin Doyle says he is not worried about his goal drought.
The Republic of Ireland international, who enjoyed a fine debut season in the Premier League last term, has struggled to recapture his form this campaign.
Doyle has gone 16 games without scoring, but the former Cork man believes he is close to finally rediscovering his golden touch in front of goal.
Confident"The good thing is I know I am a couple of inches away from scoring," Doyle told the Reading Evening News.
"I just look to the next game and sooner rather than later would be nice - it doesn't matter who it's against."
Reading face Newcastle this weekend and Doyle knows his side face a tough game following the Magpies' recent upturn in form.
"They have their tails up now and they all seem happy again having come into some form," added Doyle.
"The pressure is off them a bit now, but that might be a good thing. They are three points ahead of us and one more win means they will be safe.
"I don't know if that will make them relax and play better, but we will be up for it.
Attacking"People always say they are not the strongest defensively, but when you win 4-1 like they did against Tottenham it doesn't matter how your defence plays.
"They are more into attacking football and showing what they can do going forward. They hadn't been doing that for a while, but have got that back now after Sunday."
