Taylor: great way to bounce back

20 October 2019

Jon Taylor felt the reaction showed by Rovers was the perfect way to bounce back after they picked up their first win in four games on Saturday.

Rovers won 2-0 at the Keepmoat Stadium against Bristol Rovers in Sky Bet League One, responding well especially after last weekend’s reversal on the road at Oxford United, and Taylor felt the side’s hard work really paid off.

“It was a great performance and the best way to react after the disappointment of last week, we worked hard this week to make sure that we put things right, and I think that really showed out there on the pitch,” he said.

“The way we played out there I don’t think many teams would have been able to cope with us really, we have to make sure that we keep that going and take that into the next couple of games this week.

“We work on shape all the time, we’ve had a full week to recover after the disappointment of last weekend, we did a lot of work on the patterns of our play, it was drilled into us throughout the week but you can see it paid off.”

Taylor grabbed the second goal in the win over the Gas, responding quickest to Niall Ennis’ parried effort to slot home from inside the area, and he is looking to kick on and help Rovers to push up the table.

“I’ve been playing on the left a lot more recently but here I was able to be a lot more direct out on the right, we got a bit of luck with the first goal after the cross in, and I felt I could’ve created a bit more with a couple other crosses in,” he added.

“I feel personally that I’ve done well, I perhaps think I could’ve scored a couple more than I have, hopefully I can go on a run where I can get a couple goals and I can help push the team up the league.

“The fans have been excellent to me since I arrived, I haven’t interacted too much on social media so far, I’ve tried to keep away from it for one reason or another, I want to keep my head down and work hard but they’ve been brilliant.”
