Having only just returned from Blackburn Rovers on a loan spell until the end of the season, former player Chris Taylor knows his second club debut couldn’t have gone much better.

With just about 48 hours to familiarise himself with the training ground, some old friends and a few new faces, Taylor’s debut against Sheffield United at the weekend saw him open his account for the second time after only two minutes of the game being played, and whilst the three points that helped ensure are massive for Millwall’s promotion hopes, they also served as a serious dent to United’s hopes for the Play Offs themselves.

Speaking to the official site he explained that he’d wanted to mark his return with a goal, but he certainly didn’t expect it to come that early in the game.

‘I dreamt about scoring the night before and luckily it came true. Most important of all though, we got the three points. At this stage of the season it’s just about getting the points on the board and making sure that we are in the top six and hopefully the top two.’

With little difficulty in reality settling back into life at the club given the faces that remain from his spell here previously back in the 2012-13 season, he went on to say.

‘Some of the lads I knew from last time so I have settled in really well. That is a big compliment to the management and the lads too. There are only nine games left and that doesn’t leave a lot of time, so it really helps to be settled in so quickly. The way they have been with me is fantastic.’

With nine games remaining the year, Taylor is also confident that he can come in and play a part in helping to put the club back into the Championship for next season, and with Bradford City next up on Saturday and their proximity to the Play Off spots as well, he knows another victory in that match would be massive.

Especially with Burton Albion following.

‘When I signed I knew the next three fixtures were very big games. Every match is massive at this stage of the season though. It’s a big week for us – one slip up and you could find yourself out of the picture. We have to keep going, keep ticking off the games and hopefully be in the shake up at the end of it.’
