Striker hopes Luton display can be a spark
It was the first time that Luton had dropped points at home since early September.
Ryan Taylor was Pompey’s hero has he scrambled home an equaliser to cancel out Luke Rooney’s opener.
That secured the Blues a 1-1 draw against a side chasing automatic promotion from League Two.
But Taylor is determined that their committed display at Kenilworth Road will not just be a one-off.
He said: “We knew that coming away to Luton was going to be a really tough game.
“And then we made it even more difficult for ourselves by going a goal down again.
“But all the boys worked extremely hard to come back and in the end it was a good point for us.
“It was perfect for us to get straight back out there after a poor result against AFC Wimbledon on Boxing Day.
“We wanted to show people what we could do and hopefully – after a bad start – that’s exactly what we did.
“Now we need to push on from here and get some more points on the board to climb up the table.”
Taylor converted Jed Wallace’s cross to score his third of the season and hopes that it will be the spark for more success in front of goal.
He said: “The ball came in and the defender tried to clear it, but I think he could only scuff it to me and the keeper only got a hand to the shot.
“At first I thought it might have been offside, but it was given and I was happy to get on the scoresheet.
“Hopefully now I can go on and get a few more goals. I’ll keep working hard in training to make that happen.”
