JT pleased with sides come back
By Matt Johnson
Jon Taylor beamed the widest of smiles after his Man of the Match display helped Town recover from 2-0 down to earn a point against Colchester at the Greenhous Meadow.
Asa Hall’s two late headers, from pinpoint Taylor corners, formed the comeback and the nippy winger praised the team’s never say die attitude.
“It’s a great comeback,” said Taylor. “Obviously from previous results we could’ve given up, but everyone here stuck together and we kept believing. The fans were excellent and they kept us going, we showed great character and the lads are buzzing.”
Taylor seemed somewhat confused with the news that Hall had got both goals and jokingly apologized that he hadn’t credited his teammate with the plaudits, but he was clearer however about his late miss that could’ve snatched a victory.
“Asa scored two? Asa didn’t score two goals, did he?
“Oh right, maybe he deserved man of the match then! That’s excellent. I didn’t know he scored two, so I apologize for that but yeah that’s great.
“I thought that I did well, I just needed that goal to top it off. Obviously I’m going to go home happy, but in the back of my mind I’ll be disappointed that I could’ve won the game for the team and got a goal for myself.
“I think I got a bit overexcited to be honest. I just thought ‘if it’s on target it’s in’ and I tried to put my foot behind it. Maybe I should’ve placed it but at the time I thought it was the right thing to do.”
Confidence can play a big part in a team’s fortunes on the pitch and Taylor was quick to get across the positive atmosphere in the dressing room after the comeback ahead of the three upcoming away games.
“The lads are buzzing. We just needed that bit of luck to win the game in the end, but we’ve got to keep on believing and keep going.
“The first one is obviously a big game for the club away at Hereford. We’re going to go there and build on this and it’s going to be a great atmosphere, but then we’ll take the rest from there.”
