GARY Bowyer welcomed Eoin Doyle’s return to City training today and said: “He’s fine.”

The striker, fresh from scoring 23 goals on loan for Swindon, was back at Apperley Bridge working with the squad ahead of Saturday’s trip to Crawley.

“He’s trained with the group and it’s great to have him back in the building,” said Bowyer. “He’s fitted in straight away as we expected him to.”

Asked about Doyle’s comments from last month about being “disappointed” if he had to return to Valley Parade, Bowyer said: “He’s no different to Omari Patrick and Sam Hornby, who are out on loan and playing.

“They are Bradford City players and they are contracted to the club.

“Once you sign a contract with a club, they pay your wages. You can bet your bottom dollar if we didn’t pay them there would be an outcry.

“He’s fine and he’s got on with it.”

Swindon boss Richie Wellens has hinted that they may try to come back in for Doyle before the end of the transfer window.

But Bowyer added: “I can’t comment on Richie Wellens and what he said and what Swindon might or might not do.

“We’ve just got to focus on Crawley. That’s our main aim.”
