Full-back relishing trip to Bramall Lane tonight...
THE SADDLERS head for Sheffield United on Tuesday with former Blade, Andy Taylor, looking forward to his Bramall Lane return this evening (kick-off 7.45pm).
“It’ll be nice to see some familiar faces and go back to a club where I spent three years ,” he said. “But it’s just another game of football for me to concentrate on and we will go there determined to do a job and get the points.
“They are a big club who I expect to be up there. It’s fair to say that they’ve had a topsy-turvy season so far, but with a new management team at the helm I expect their fortunes to pick up – after tonight, of course!
“It’s a big stadium and the crowd can give them a boost, but it can also work against them if things aren’t going their way.
“We fear no-one in this League and will go there full of confidence, particularly on the back of three consecutive clean sheets.
“As a defensive unit we are pleased with that; it gives us something to build on and we know that defending starts from the front with everyone working hard and doing their jobs.
“It was a little disappointing that we couldn’t get all three points at Crawley as we created the better chances. We restricted them to only a few opportunities, but it is something to build on tonight.”
Taylor also had words of support for team-mates, Adam and James Chambers, whose father passed away at the end of last week.
“It’s a difficult situation but they are solid professionals,” he went on. “They wear their hearts on their sleeves and it was fantastic to see them involved in the last game.
“As a team we appreciate that. This is a family club and we have such a tight-knit squad, qualities and spirit which are important to us.”
