Once-capped Ireland international Michael Doyle with an unreal 30-yard volley for Pompey

Surely the veteran midfielder has made himself a contender for goal of the season with this strike.

PAUL COOK’S PORTSMOUTH are up to fourth in League Two after a 3-1 victory over Accrington Stanley away from home last night.

The former Sligo Rovers boss praised his side’s first half performance as their best this season after three goals before the break sealed the three points.

Pompey had two Irish players in their starting line-up in former Shamrock Rovers and Aston Villa defender Enda Stevens and club captain Michael Doyle.

And it was the 34-year-old midfielder, capped once by Ireland at senior level back in 2006, who came up with the club’s goal of the night (and quite possibly the season) when he blasted a dipping volley in the back of the net from 30 yards.
