Barnes: Taylor is the benchmark

07 September 2009 02:01
Barnes has come under increased scrutiny following a miserable run of five defeats in six League One outings so far this season. The latest setback was a 3-0 thumping at Carlisle, but the efforts of Taylor - a second-half substitute at Brunton Park - provided Barnes with a rare positive. He said: "Every time Ash has played he has shown the kind of spirit and desire I want in my side. We just need more players to have that attitude on the field." Meanwhile, defender Gavin Gunning has returned to Blackburn after completing a month-long loan but Grenada international striker Kithson Bain is due to join Rovers' squad this week.
