Stuart Taylor is hoping he will be keeping the goalie shirt for our next match after putting in a decent performance against Liverpool.
He was also full or praise for Curtis Davies who he believes was pivotal in us gaining a point against the Scousers.
Describing the onloan defender as somebody who has a 'never say die' attitude, Taylor was pleased with the match and the point.
Speaking to IC Brum after the match he said:
'The lads showed great character in the second half and, defensively, I thought Curtis Davies was magnificent.
'He headed everything and blocked shots all over the place.'
Taylor is hoping he did enough to keep Carson out of the team when we play Blackburn this Saturday, but has admitted O'Neill always plays his cards close to his chest and rarely lets on who will be in the team from one match to the next.
'We keep picking up points all the time. We need to keep plugging away. If we can nick points at Anfield, that's a good thing.
'Overall, we were disappointed to come in with a draw.
'We did brilliantly to get back into the game after going behind and we really thought we could win it going into the last few minutes.
'Crouchy nicked a goal at the end but it's good to get a point at Anfield in the cold light of day.
'The manager was delighted and that's good enough for us.
'We had done well to dig in and get ahead and we were gutted not to pick up maximum points.
'It was nice to have a game at Anfield.
'I haven't had that many chances to play but with Scott coming here on loan from Liverpool it meant I got the opportunity.
'I knew either myself or Thomas Sorensen would be playing in the game and we both had to prepare well.
'We only find out the team when we get into the dressing room before each match.
'The manager keeps things close to his chest. I was half expecting to play and knew I had to perform well on the day.'
I think few fans would disagree that Taylor was unfortunate to be dropped when Carson signed, so if given a run in the team I can't imagine many complaining.
