Taylor Made For Victory

Taylor Made For Victory

Full back Charlie Taylor has been speaking about how he feels he's improved following his arrival at Burnley over the summer from Leeds United but given his recent run in the side he now wants a run of victories under his belt.

Having come off the bench to make his top flight bow in the match against Stoke City earlier in the season and with that result moving us into fourth place in the table following the clash at Turf Moor, wins have been hard to come by since and speaking to the Official Site he explained that returning to winning ways was everyone's focus as we look to end a good season on a better high.

'I think I`ve improved from last season just in these last two months alone. You are learning on the job, coming up against the players you are week-in, week-out. The Premier League is so tough. You`ve got a top-class winger up against you every week. Even when you`re not playing the top six, there`s a Zaha or Shaqiri. It`s a very tough league but one you want to test yourself in. All you want to do as a professional is play week-in, week-out and I`ve had the chance to do that for the last couple of months. It`s been brilliant and I`ve loved every minute of it.'

Taylor's chance in the side came following Stephen Ward's knee injury which brought the Republic of Ireland international's ever present run to an end, and the left back more than seized his chance.

With Ward now back fit and working towards winning his spot back, Taylor knows that competition is only going to help him improve as a player further, but for now it's all about the three points.

'We had a tough run of fixtures when I came into the side. It was a challenge but one I`ve loved and the three points now are what I desperately want to get. I`ve played in teams before when we`ve not won in however long and it is hard and things do get frustrating. But you`ve just got to stay focused and stay calm and if you keep on playing well the results will come.'

The 24 year old went on to say.

'I think it`s in your mind. I think everyone would say it`s in your mind somewhere, but it`s something you`ve got to blank out and take the next game that comes along and the aim, as always, is to get the three points. The performances have been good, other than maybe at Swansea, and we have picked up some good results along the way - the draw against City being the highlight. A draw against City is nearly as good as a win but the three points is what we need and now with a couple of home games coming up hopefully we can get there. We maybe had an off day at Swansea. I think Saturday will be different, with us being at home and having the crowd behind us, and hopefully it`s a good one.'
