Taylor: I’ve never felt dressing-room buzz like this before

CHRIS Taylor has revealed that the team spirit within the Millwall squad is unlike anything he has ever experienced before.

Taylor believes the Lions’ dressing-room togetherness has contributed to their recent unbeaten run, which was extended to 11 matches with a 2-0 win against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

But the winger insists Millwall will not get carried away with a trip to Wolves coming up on Tuesday – despite breaking into the play-off positions for the first time this season.

“We don’t talk about promotion amongst ourselves, just the next game,” he said. “We’re taking it one game at a time.

“But the buzz is amazing. I’ve never felt a buzz quite like this in a dressing room. We fight for one another, back each other up and we believe we can win every time we go out on the pitch.

“We came to Blackburn believing we could win the game and in the end we could have scored a couple more goals.

“They were in the Premier League last year so we’ll have even more confidence than we did before. But the manager stressed that we’ve got to prepare for the next game.

“We’re focused on playing Wolves on Tuesday. We don’t want to look further than that. I hope our mentality doesn’t change because it’s taken us this far and hopefully we can go even further.”

Chris Wood opened the scoring for Millwall at Ewood Park with a 20-yard thunderbolt and Taylor is hoping the club can keep the West Brom striker beyond the end of his loan spell in January.

“I’ve seen him score a few goals like that in training,” he said. “He’s got some power in those legs and when it happens on a matchday, it’s even sweeter.

“Woody’s been different class – not just his goals, but his work rate and determination for the team. Goals win games and he’s been top goalscorer for us, but he also works as hard as anyone else.

“He’s getting lots of goals but it’s a team game and the manager stresses that. He would be a loss if he didn’t stay, but hopefully that won’t happen.

“He’s been a massive player and hopefully we can keep him.”
