The games that you play football for

After making his long-awaited return to first team action in midweek, Chris Taylor is eager to be involved on derby day this Saturday.

The popular midfielder impressed on his first league appearance of season against Derby County on Wednesday night, and hopes he has done enough to be part of the manager's plans against Burnley in the lunchtime clash.

Taylor feels the draw against the Rams was the perfect preparation for the visit of Sean Dyche's side, and having played in the games the last time the two sides met, he knows how big an occasion it is.

"I thought we did enough to win the game against Derby but it sets us up nicely for the Burnley game," Taylor told Radio Rovers.

"That is the one you don't want to lose, it is massive for both sets of fans.

"I was involved in both games two years ago and I'm looking forward to playing in this one. They are just unbelievable games. These are the games that you live for, the games that you play football for.

"So hopefully I'm involved on Saturday, we'll see."

Rovers supporters are reminded to get their Burnley tickets in advance as there'll be no sales on the day of the game.

Tickets for Saturday's 12.30pm clash will be on sale until close of business this Friday, with a crowd of over 20,000 anticipated for the first east Lancashire derby of the season.

Tickets are available to database members with a history of purchasing tickets to Rovers home games with prices from £28 for Adults, from £19 for Seniors, from £19 for 18-21 year-olds, and from £14 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
