Taylor Ready for Bolton Start

Current Villa number two Stuart Taylor has admitted he expected a 'hiding' as he came on following Scott Carson's dismissal, but is now looking forward to starting the next game against Bolton.

The on-loan keeper will miss the match following his red-card against Manchester United, and whilst Taylor still believes that sulky-Sorensen is in with a shout, he hopes that he will get the nod ahead of the Danish number 1.

Taylor spoke to avfc.co.uk about his chances of a rare start:

'It's obviously down to the manager. We've still got Thomas Sorensen at the club and I don't know what the manager's thinking.

'If I get the nod, I'll go out there and look to do a job. It's the job of a substitute goalie to wait for a chance and take it. You feel sorry for Scott, but if I get the chance, I have to do my best to take it.'


Taylor has in the past been prone to “doing a Paul Robinson” when it comes to easily saveable shots, often choosing to palm it away somewhere dangerous, compared to the novel idea of keeping hold of it, or perhaps deflecting the ball somewhere save, such as out of play.

With Thomas Sorensen no doubt ranting and raving about his selection chances, Taylor will have to be on top form in training this week to ensure he remains the next choice after Scott Carson.

More like "hmmm...I like biscuits" than any thought of something serious. You can also see the article above of Zat Knight, goes well with the hearing voices!

I'd start Stuart at The Reebok, but then again I'd start a few players that probably dont feature in MON's thinking right now. Taylor hasn't done too much wrong in his appearances this season (Liverpool and Saturday's brief stint), so I think he deserves the opportunity of a full ninety, with Tommy S having to make do with a place on the bench.

Davies to replace Knight. Maloney to replace Moore, Osbourne/Moustapha to replace Reo.

Long term though, we need to be looking for decent back up for Scott Carson. Neither Taylor nor Tommy S are going to be at VP much longer.
