Eoin Doyle will be heading for pastures new next season when he will be pulling on the Chesterfield strip. However, he has no intentions of letting his mind wonder too far ahead just yet as he strives to win a place in the Hibs team that will feature in the Scottish Cup Final on 26 May. He is determined to give his all between now and the end of the season as the Easter Road side look to end the 111 year wait winners medals and aim for seventh place in the SPL.Eion Doyle scores in his first appearance for Hibs (c) Ger Harley | SportPix.org.uk
Doyle said: "It's a new chapter in my life, a new challenge, but I'm not even thinking about next year to be honest. We've got a lot to play for this season and my mind is entirely on that. If we win the cup, I could stay here for another 30 years and still not have anything to match that. I don't think there's anyone alive who was around the last time we won the cup so it would be brilliant to be part of the team that wins it. It's important to me to sign off on a high when I leave. Hibs are a massive club and they've been great to me. I've enjoyed every minute of being up here and I'd love nothing more than to leave with a medal. That would be great. I don't feel under any more pressure since the news came out that I'm leaving. I don't feel I need to be seen to be giving my all because I don't think I've ever left myself short in effort. I always give my all - if anything I maybe give too much and end up doing stupid things! My plan now is to give 100 per cent for these last few league games and hopefully play myself into the cup final team and hopefully get the win."Last night's home game against Aberdeen - their first post-split fixture - ended in a dour goalless draw. Doyle said: "I think we should have taken a win. We had the better chances in the game and we played well defensively but we didn't take our chances when they came around. I suppose we are all trying to keep our place for the final but our aim for the time being is finishing seventh in the league. If you can get into the team, and get a couple of good performances behind you, the manager will find it hard to drop you when it comes to the final. We just take each game as it comes and the final is still a good few weeks away, so we are just looking forward to Saturday. Our aim is seventh place and if we can achieve that we'll be high on confidence going into the final."
