Taylor: "It's got to be my goal"

27 December 2012

Jon Taylor claims the second goal as his

Jon Taylor insisted it was his goal which rescued Shrewsbury Town a Boxing Day point despite the effort being widely reported as an own goal from Notts County goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski.
Taylor's 81st minute cross-shot seemed to take a deflection off full back Jeff Hughes and loop over the keeper who could only turn it into his own net.
But the 20-year-old winger was adamant the goal should go down as his which makes it a goal in each of the last four games for the in-form Liverpudlian. 
Taylor said: "The referee said afterwards he's given it to me, that it was my goal, and the linesman also said the same because it was on target so it's got to be my goal.
"It went down on Sky Sports as an own goal but it's got to be my goal.
"I've seen the keeper off his line so I've had a shot and the keeper's punched it in so it was on target.
"If they give me it then it's four goals in four games but it's got to be my goal - the keeper doesn't want it but I do."
Taylor had been rated a doubt to be fit enough to face the Magpies after tweaking a hamsstring in last Friday's game at Bury but he came through the Boxing Day clash with no problems.  
"It felt a bit tight," he added. "It's my hamstring, calf, the back of my knee, it's all connected. When I came off at Bury I knew I was in good hands and that I would be all right.
"The gaffer gave me a couple of days off and it worked. I trained Christmas Day, played the next day, so it's all right.
"I can't wait for Brentford on Saturday now. It's another good game at home so it would be nice to get more points on the board."
