Taylor: I'm really enjoying my football at Rovers

25 October 2019

Jon Taylor feels he is thriving in the Rovers side after joining the club in the summer.

The Rovers’ no.10 got the second goal in a 2-0 win at home to Bristol Rovers - his second of the season following August’s winner against Lincoln City - and he contributed to Rovers' 7-1 win over Southend. Taylor says he is loving every minute at the Keepmoat Stadium so far.

“The players in this team are excellent, and they make it such a good place to play and such a good team to play in, I’m absolutely loving it, there was so much relief when I got my goal here because I know I could’ve had more this season already,” he said.

“You’re always going to get chances in this side, the two Bens in midfield are always going to find the right pass, but the rotation of that front three to find the pockets and the positions we work on every day is unbelievable.

“The way that we play in this team, we’re always going to get chances in front of goal, it’s so enjoyable to play in and I’m really loving my football at the minute, especially when you have a day like we’ve had here.”

Taylor made the short journey down the M18 to sign for Rovers in August having left rivals Rotherham United earlier in the summer, and he feels the free-flowing football under Darren Moore is something that is improving him as a player.

“I feel like with the chances I’ve had I could be pushing six or seven goals so I’ve been kicking myself a little bit, but I’ve been working hard every day in training, doing loads of shooting, and I hope now that will pay off,” he added.

“The gaffer and the other coaches work on it every single day and we all learn so much from them all, we know if we get in the positions they say to then we’re going to get the ball and create chances for everyone.

“It’s so different for me to come in and play in a team like this, I’ve never really played in a side like it before I think, it is just so enjoyable to play in, hopefully now we can really kick on.”
