'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Taylor-made

I have heard some question Ryan Taylor.

For me I think the guy is a decent enough footballer who works really hard for us - he should have scored an absolute sitter against Exeter last week, but that aside I have not seen much from him to suggest that he will not do a decent job for us.

He has scored a few goals for us including the winner back along and the one against Wimbledon on Saturday.

In scoring that goal Taylor picked up a cut to his head but he told The Official Website that he was not too bothered by that.

A groin injury did eventually see him off though, not that 'little cut': 'it was just nice to get the goal. I'm not really bothered about the cut on my head. Danny put a great ball in, I judged the flight of it and managed to get my head on it.

'Their lad just stuck his head back and caught me on the forehead. I saw a bit of blood, but I was wheeling away and happy to get the goal.

'It was the groin injury that forced me off not the little cut - that would have been a bit embarrassing.'

Can we now pull away from the relegation zone to ensure we stay in league two?

You would certainly hope so!

As far as he is concerned if we keep 'producing performances' like that, while keeping an eye on the bottom 2, we could soon be 'looking up' and not down at the table: 'it's another three points and the boys were terrific. We've got to keep producing performances like that to get up the table.

'We showed great fight. I wasn't on for the last half an hour, but the rest of the lads ran their socks off and put their bodies on the line.

'Wimbledon were putting wave after wave of attack on us and the boys hung in there brilliantly.

'We still need to be mindful of the drop zone, but if we keep picking up points then we can start looking up the table rather than down it.'

Like I say I think the guy has done ok for us so far.

Perhaps the only question mark I would have about him would be who he is best suited to playing up top with?

Normally I would have been nervous when we were under pressure at the end but, against Wimbledon I loved it. Our players got everything and anything in the way to keep the ball out of our goal and the crowd really got behind them to roar Pompey to victory. A great ending!
