Question of the Week

Will Paul Hurst stay at Grimsby?



On-loan striker Taylor in doubt for Saturday

By: Richard Lord
Date: 30/01/2002

GRIMSBY Town's loan striker Robert Taylor eventually managed to achieve what other Town strikers haven't done over the past nine games away from home - score. The 30-year old hit the back of the net for Town in his second game for the Mariners and revealed his delight to the Evening Telegraph.

"It's nice to score. After so long out through injury one of the things you ask yourself is 'can I ever score goals again?' I don't know what the feeling was like it's been that long," admitted Taylor. "I don't usually score scrappy goals, but I'm glad I did here." "It would be nice to score again on Saturday in front of the home fans. They came to Rotherham to give us good support and even when we were under the cosh they were still singing. It was good to hear and kept us going. "I've played away twice and a home game will be good for us. We have to grind results out away from home, but if we work hard like we did here then one point can become four. "To win on Saturday we'll have to dig deep again but the fans will be behind us hopefully. The lads are young and they thrive on confidence. Once that gets going they'll play some good football. The fans have a huge part to play in that." However, Taylor was made to pay the price when he took a kick on the foot only four minutes after scoring the game's opener. "It's killing me now, but I had to stay on to help out with the defending. For any set pieces I just limped back and put my head on it. The top of my foot has really ballooned." Despite the knock, the former Gillingham marksman should be available for the match against Bradford at Blundell Park this weekend. After finally putting 16 months of misery behind him, the team and the fans alike will be hoping for more of the same from 'Super Bob' on Saturday.
