Mansfield next in Taylor's sight
“We’re determined to get a good result and want to start climbing further up the league.
“It was good to get on the scoresheet again and hopefully I can build on that at the weekend.
He said: “I feel absolutely fine. The rehab went brilliant and I feel better this time than when I came back after the last injury.
And now a fully-fit Taylor is hoping to help fire the Blues to victory when Mansfield visit Fratton Park on Saturday.
He collected Alex Wynter’s fine cross before beating Jordan Archer with a neat finish.
The striker made a goalscoring return in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy defeat to Northampton.
It was Ryan Taylor’s first Pompey start in exactly a month.
But he admits that the league is their priority this season ahead of a visit from the 15th-placed Stags.
Taylor was disappointed that his second goal of the season could not prevent Pompey from exiting the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
“We want to get into the play-off places and higher if we can and the only way to do that is to start winning on a more consistent basis.” “Nobody likes losing, but our main focus is always the league and we have to concentrate on beating a tough Mansfield side.”
“The young lads who came into the side were absolutely superb and that bodes well for the future.
“It was end-to-end and there were plenty of positives for us to take from the game,” said Taylor. “We just gave a sloppy goal away.
