Taylor - Millers are perfect for me

"I'm a local lad and this club is perfect for me," said Taylor talking to the Advertiser.

"I've always supported Rotherham and I just want to stay here, keep working hard and score goals. I'm only 20. I've still got things to learn and I need games under my belt. Each match will help me and if I can get some goals then that's when I'll start to really push on.

"I've always had confidence in my ability and I know what I can do. It's just about getting it out of myself and believing in myself. I know I'm a good player. I just need some consistency.

"I started the season well but I dropped off. I've come back and I think I'm doing better."

Taylor, 20, had a bout of glandular fever almost two years ago and continued: "I trained at a boxing gym last summer and I've actually been back a couple of times since to keep ticking over. Now I want that to start showing on the pitch.

"Body strength is important and you only have to look at the size of the defenders at Lincoln last week, for example. They were big lads. You've got to be strong in this league."

With other Millers squad players currently out on loan to non-league outfits, Taylor added: "I want to be in the Football League. I went on loan to Burton and although enjoyed my time there, having seen the Blue Square Premier, I think I'm good enough to play in this league.

"I just want go get better and better now as the season goes on. Every time I get on the field, I've got to get out there, start taking my chances and show that I can do it."
