Paul Taylor will become a “fans’ favourite” at Ipswich Town

PAUL Taylor will become a big player for the Blues – once he realises he doesn’t need to break the net!

That is the prediction of Town boss Paul Jewell who revealed he has given some one-on-one guidance to his new �1.5million signing.

Taylor produced a man-of-the-match display at Middlesbrough with his quick feet and shoot-on-sight policy.

The next thing on the agenda needs to be goals from the former Peterborough man.

Jewell revealed: “I said to him you only get one goal, even if you break the net.

“He had eight shots on goal against Middlesbrough, he had numerous shots against Huddersfield – he is going to be a big player for us and a real fans’ favourite in years to come.”

While Taylor impressed at the Riverside, Town were often strangely lacking a cutting edge in the 2-0 defeat.

Jewell said: “I just thought (against Boro) we were a bit wasteful and sloppy when we got into good situations.

“It is not as if we missed chance after chance, but we had opportunities to make chances.

“On Saturday, if we got a goal you got a sense the Middlesbrough supporters could turn against them and we might go on to win the game comfortably.

“It is that key time at games, we are not scoring a goal or we are conceding. That just changes the whole direction of a match. We have to be a bit more ruthless in both boxes.”
