Waiting in the wings

27 November 2014

Chris Taylor is eager to be more involved in Rovers' push for promotion.

The midfielder admits it is currently difficult to break into the starting eleven, but is happy for it to remain that way if the side continue their unbeaten run.

Taylor has started just one league game for Rovers this campaign, but with the side currently in a fine run of form, the 27-year-old knows he may have to bide his time for another opportunity.

"The manager has kept the same team for a while now but it is because the lads are doing so well," said Taylor.

"We are eight games unbeaten now and it is nothing but positive at the minute. We are putting in good performances and getting some good results.

"The lads in the wings are chomping at the bit, biding their time and hopefully when they get the chance they'll take it.

"Sometimes it gets you down a little bit because you just want to play but that is just football.

"The lads who aren't playing train as hard as we can and we just wait for our chance. But if the lads keep performing like this you don't know when it will come, and hopefully that can continue because it means if we aren't getting the chance then the lads are doing well and going up the table.

"That is the main aim collectively, we all want top six come the end of the season no matter who is playing."

Taylor could get his chance in this weekend's match against Middlesbrough as Rovers will be without Tom Cairney who serves a one-match suspension following his sending off against Leeds United last Saturday.

"You never know," added the midfielder. "Obviously Tom has been a big player for us but he'll be missing on Saturday.

"So someone has got to fill in, whether it is me or Conway or Tunnicliffe that is up to the gaffer. You've just got to be ready for the call when it comes.

"It is a massive game against Middlesbrough and if we were to get a good result there then we'd leapfrog them and possibly to second.

"So it is a massive game and another chance to strive forward."

Tickets for Saturday's game go off sale at Ewood at 4pm on Friday and at 5.30pm from the Oneroverstore on Church Street, Blackburn this Thursday.

Supporters can purchase tickets on the day of the game at the Riverside Stadium, cash only from the South Stand ticket office next to the away turnstiles from 1.30pm.

Ticket prices are £31 for Adults, £23 for over 65s and £16 for Under-18s.
