Bantams Recall Doyle

The Irishman's scored 23 goals for divisional rivals Swindon this season.

Bradford City have recalled Eoin Doyle from his loan spell at Swindon Town.

The former Preston and Cardiff City striker has been in prolific form since he was loaned out at the start of the season, scoring 23 goals in just 22 games for the Robins.

Those figures make him League Two's top scorer, notching more than double the amount of goals as his closest competitor. In the league this season Doyle has scored a goal every 91 minutes.

The 31 year old's goals have helped Swindon to the top of the table, where they currently sit 6 points above the Bantams in fourth. Depriving a promotion rival of those goals could be just as valuable to Gary Bowyer's side as any he scores back at his parent club.

In a press release, Bowyer said: "It is great to have Eoin back in the squad.

"To say he is bang in form would be an understatement and it is up to us to keep producing chances for him. He is a model professional, who looks after himself well. We look forward to seeing him scoring goals for us. He will be like a new signing and will fill the rest of lads with a lot of confidence."

Doyle will be available for Saturday's away clash with Crawley Town.
