CRYSTAL Palace defender Damien Delaney is hoping Kevin Doyle can recapture the form which made him a prolific striker at the likes of Reading and Wolverhampton Wanderers. The 30-year-old arrived on loan from Wolves on transfer deadline day – and his goalscoring record in recent years made a number of Palace fans raise their eyebrows following the news. However, Delaney has played with Doyle at international level for the Republic of Ireland for a few years and believes if the forward can find his old form, Palace will have "a hell of a player". "He's got a great leap on him, he'll add mobility and he's a guy I've known for a long time," said the 33-year-old. "I've played against him – things at Wolves went right for him and he did well getting promoted on loan at QPR last season. "If we can revitalise him with the form he showed at Reading and Wolves then I'll tell you, we'll have a hell of a player on our hands. "He's got pace, power, and he can finish. I think he may have a point to prove but he's a good guy."Follow your Palace reporter on Twitter @MR_LWMediaLike our Facebook page at facebook.com/AdvertiserSport
