Taylor targets more goals

10 January 2013

JT looking to continue his recent good form

Shrewsbury Town winger Jon Taylor admits he would love to get back among the goals as preparations continue for Saturday's home game against bottom side Hartlepool United.
The 20-year-old recently found the net in four successive matches against Crawley, Carlisle, Bury and Notts County to take his tally for the season to five.
He has not scored in the last three despite a number of near misses and insists he would love to play a leading role in stretching Town's unbeaten seven game run by notching against Hartlepool.
"Hopefully I'll score," said Taylor. "I had one cleared off the line in the last home game against Brentford and then the keeper pulled off a great save at Scunthorpe last weekend so hopefully one will go in on Saturday."
Taylor insisted there was no danger of Town taking anything for granted against Hartlepool despite the north easterners continuing to struggle at the foot of the table. 
"It's not guaranteed but we're going to into it with the confidence that we can win the game," said Taylor. "We're at home and every game at home is a winnable one.
"Hartlepool are going to be fighting for their lives but so are we."   
Taylor added he was pleased to have been singled out for a special mention from manager Graham Turner - along with goalkeeper Chris Weale - for the part they have played in lifting Shrewsbury seven points clear of the relegation zone.
"It's obviously a nice compliment to get from the gaffer," he said. "It just makes me want to keep doing what I'm doing on and off the pitch and just keep it going really."
