Eoin Doyle has assured Hibs boss Pat Fenlon he will give his all in the Scottish Cup final against Celtic if given the nod at Hampden Park.

Eoin Doyle: Joining Chesterfield in the summer

It was revealed a number of weeks ago that the Irish forward will quit the Edinburgh club for a switch to Chesterfield in the summer.

But he is determined to go out on a high and write his name into Hibs folklore by helping them lift the trophy before he says his farewells.

Doyle said: "It would be nice to go down in the history books for such a massive club. It would be a dream of mine.

"It will be my last game for the club and, if I do get the nod for it, I certainly won't be short of effort.

"When I knew I was leaving, I put that to the side.

"I was just concentrating on giving 100 per cent in the last few games for the club and I think I've showed that.

"I always want to do my best for the club.

"The manager brought me over here, he put faith in me, and I suppose you could say that I owe him for that.

"I'm going to give everything until the end of the season."

Doyle did his chances of making the Hampden team no harm when he bagged a late double in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premier League.

He said: "I gave it 100 per cent. I thought the goal maybe wasn't going to come.

"I had a few missed chances and the offside goal but I kept at it and it came in the end. I'm happy we got the three points."

Victory for Hibs over Celtic on May 26 would end a 111-year wait to lift the Scottish Cup - and make amends for last year's 5-1 capitulation to city rivals Hearts.

Doyle said: "There have been a lot of changes in the dressing room but, for those of us who were there last year, it's always in the back of our minds.

"It wasn't a nice day at all and it wasn't a nice summer after it.

"We know we owe the fans a lot and we will be trying our best to give everything on the day.

"It's been a long time now and it's hard to believe, with the stature of the club. Hopefully this is the year we can do it."
