Taylor out to create more cup memories

23 January 2015

Chris Taylor hopes to play another key role for Rovers when they take on Swansea City in the fourth round of the FA Cup at Ewood Park this Saturday.

The midfielder was Rovers' matchwinner in the previous round at the Valley, scoring a goal in each half to knock Charlton Athletic out of the competition.

Taylor has fond memories of the FA Cup having been part of the Millwall side that reached the semi-finals two years ago, and he'd love to progress through to the next stage with Rovers.

"I can't wait," Taylor told Rovers Player. "I've got some good memories of the cup so hopefully myself and the team can look forward to creating a few more this weekend.

"A win could give us a massive lift, we've another big week coming up, we've got three tough games in a week, so to get a win on Saturday would allow us to take it into Tuesday's match at Derby."

After taking Manchester City to a replay last season, the midfielder is looking forward to testing himself against more top-flight opponents this weekend at Ewood.

Swansea present a tough challenge to Rovers, but one that Taylor is looking forward to.

He added: "It is against opposition from the league above which is where everybody at this club wants to be. It is a challenge and one that you want to do well, to test yourselves against players playing at a higher level.

"I think any team from the Premier League would be favourites, but on our day I think we can more than give them a game and I don't think it would be a massive shock if we were to beat them.

"It is a one-off game and one to look forward to."
