Striker looking to build on Exeter point

The striker said: “Obviously I wasn’t here at the start of last season, but I think we’ve got a good squad here this year and can have a successful season.

But Taylor still feels that Pompey can make a big impact on League Two this term.

They might have claimed all three points, but could not convert a dominant second half display into more goals.

The Blues secured a 1-1 draw in their season opener after Jed Wallace cancelled out Tom Nichols’ opener.

Ryan Taylor believes that a point at Exeter gives Pompey a platform to build on.

“It’s a point on the board for us and now we need to build on that and collect another three next week.

“It was a good performance in the end. We could have won it because we had a few chances in the second half.

“We didn’t start too well, but we applied plenty of pressure after the break and were on the front foot.

“There were a few sloppy passes and it just took us a bit of time to get going. I’m not really sure why that was.

“But we kept pushing away and it was a brilliant finish from Jed for the goal. We were happy with the point in the end, but it could have been more. “I haven’t played much in pre-season, so I was happy to be back out there and want to get fully fit as soon as possible.”

“I think Exeter looked really tired in the first 20 minutes, although I can’t really say much because I felt the same way! : He said

Taylor is looking to build up his fitness levels after missing a chunk of pre-season with a groin injury.

“It was a collective effort and I was pleased with the work-rate we produced.”
