Steven Taylor: “I feel good and fresh.
“It’s just what I wanted – getting out there and playing games.
“It’s given me confidence. I’m feeling good and training hard. We just want to get more wins now.
“There are a lot of games now, which is great for me. I just want to keep going to the end of the season.
“We’ll have a strong team out (against Metalist), and we’ll give it a good go.
“We want to go as far as we can in this competition.
"Coloccini and I have got a great understanding together – he’s a great player.
“We know each others strengths and weaknesses. I think that showed (in the first leg).
“The gaffer, JC (John Carver) and Stoney (Steve Stone) work on it a lot. They’re always trying to surround us with attackers. We’ve got to cope with that, and I think that showed.
“The more times we play together, the better understanding we can get as a defence.
“I thought Mapou (Yanga-Mbiwa) was fantastic on his debut.”
