Eager to grasp this opportunity

27 March 2015

New signing Paul Taylor is eager to make up for lost time after joining Rovers from Ipswich Town.

The forward links up with the Lancashire club on an emergency loan until the end of the season, and is aiming to put a frustrating few months behind him.

Taylor spent the first half of this season's campaign on loan at fellow Championship side Rotherham United, but after returning to Ipswich found his first team opportunities limited.

The Liverpudlian was allowed to spend time training at Brockhall last month and impressed enough to complete a temporary move back to the north west.

"I just want to get started playing football," said the 27-year-old.

"I haven't played a competitive game for two months now, so now I've got the opportunity to play football and express myself.

"I've been doing a lot of training and a lot of running, but it isn't anything like match fitness, so as soon as I start playing the better.

"I'll try my hardest here at Blackburn, hopefully catch the eye of the gaffer and staff and hopefully get a contract in the summer.

"This is the biggest club I've been to with the history and everything about it. The facilities, the training ground facilities, everything is just brilliant. It is the club that I want to be with."

Taylor is expected to go straight into the squad for Rovers' next league game against Leeds United, but isn't eligible to feature in the FA Cup replay against Liverpool.
