Taylor bides his time

08 December 2010 03:30
Young Bournemouth striker Lyle Taylor is content to work hard and wait for his chance to gain regular first-team football at the club. The 20-year-old former Millwall trainee, who was signed from non-league Concord Rangers in the summer after hitting 34 goals for the Ryman league side, has made five brief substitute appearances for Eddie Howe's side this season while hitting three goals in four games for the reserves. Taylor told the Bournemouth Echo: "They have been working hard with me and are trying to get me ready to step on to the pitch. I'll keep working hard until the manager sees fit to give me my chance but I know the time needs to be right. "It's great being back in the full-time ranks. It has taken a little while to adapt, especially having come from non-league where I was training two nights a week and playing on a Saturday. "I had a good year with Concord and was fortunate to be with a club where I was almost the focal point of the attack. That helped me score goals and mature as a player."
