ANTONI Sarcevic hopes to give Eoin Doyle a run for his money in front of goal for Wanderers this season.

The League Two promotion winners, with Plymouth and Swindon respectively, have dropped back into the fourth tier to be key components of Ian Evatt’s new-look Bolton side.

Doyle arrives as the leading marksman in the division last season with his 25 goals firing the Robins to the title in the shortened season while Sarcevic’s 10 helped Argyle finish third and also reach League One.

After talks with Evatt about his role at the UniBol, he has been given reassurances that he will be handed a similar midfield task to the one that saw him hit double figures last time around, both his previous manager Ryan Lowe and new boss preferring to play three at the back.

“That was massive last year,” said Sarcevic, Plymouth’s player of the year and leading goalscorer in 2019/20.

“The gaffer wants me to play exactly the same role, which I think is my best position.

“It’s down to me to produce that kind of form again.

“Goals, assists, that’s what I am all about. So hopefully I can give Eoin Doyle a run for his money.”

The arrivals of Sarcevic and Doyle have made the Whites’ ambitions crystal clear as they find themselves in the fourth tier for just the second time in their history.

Defender George Taft and midfielder Brandon Comley have also joined as part of Evatt’s overhaul.

But it was Doyle that caught the eye of many, including his fellow new signing.

“I can remember playing against Eoin Doyle last year and he scored in both games against us,” Sarcevic said.

“And for him to come back into League Two next season speaks volumes about the club and the direction it is going in.

“I know he felt Swindon would have gone on and won the title by a lot more points if the games had continued – I disagree with that, but I know if we’d had someone like Eoin Doyle in our side we would have been 10 points clear, easy.”
