The Glenboig fighter was set to meet McAllister at the Beach Ballroom this month only for a back injury to sideline the champion and put the tussle back to November 25.
Meanwhile the 27-year-old will meet as yet unknown opposition at Paisley Town Hall, on Friday, October 19, as he bids to keep ticking over ahead of his date with the Aberdeen Assassin.
Although Doyle admits that McAllister will start as firm favourite in front of his home fans in the Granite City, he is confident he has the game plan to create an upset in the Beach Ballroom and clinch a possible all-Glasgow bust-up with Willie Limond.
Doyle said: "I guess you could say that it is slightly risky business taking the six-rounder at Paisley Town Hall, but I just want to make sure my timing is good for McAllister and that I am not rusty. Obviously you could come a cropper or suffer a cut but that is the nature of boxing and I have confidence in my own ability.
"The night I got the news that McAllister was injured I was in training at the Blantyre Miners Welfare Gym and I said to my trainer John McDermott I felt like just packing up and going home.
"Now I have this warm-up fight to keep me ticking over, it will help me avoid going stale.
"I've already won the British Masters title, however, the Commonwealth title is a big step up from that. McAllister is a fine boxer but I have the ability and the game plan to beat him. All I need is the chance."
Doyle is not short of some motivation to land the Commonwealth belt with his wife Gillian expecting their first child in November. The body shot specialist is hoping for a double dose of celebration.
While his coach, the renowned Scottish trainer McDermott, struck gold at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games 50 years back this November, Doyle is also keen to reward his coach.
While the orthodox Scot last fought back in April it was his success in his previous fight, in blitzing the heavily-touted Gary McArthur of Clydebank, that was the launch pad to success with him holding an 11-fight unbeaten professional record.
Doyle, who combines boxing with his day job as a store man with Reigart in Coatbridge, said: "Beating McArthur was a big win for me. To take him out in three rounds was good work and I was particularly happy with the body shot that ended it.
"That win gave me a lot of confidence and then to back that up by beating Youssef Al Hamidi, who has been in the ring with Ricky Burns, was another decent win."
He added: "Ricky Hatton is my favourite fighter and he was a great pressure fighter who was brutal to the body. I have always admired the way he has gone about his work and the attack to the body is something that is under-rated in terms of just how good it is.
"Hopefully in November I can make it work big time for me against McAllister. But for now all my focus is on making sure I get the win at Paisley Town Hall and go up to Aberdeen with everything in good working order."
