READ | Taylor pleased with positive signs

Jon Taylor talks to

Rotherham United midfielder Jon Taylor says he has noticed a marked improvement under new boss Kenny Jackett, despite the former Wolves chief only having taken charge of two games with his new club.

The industrious winger, who has featured in every game that the Millers have been involved in during the 2016/17 campaign, admits that the influence of the new gaffer is already noticeable and says if he and his teammates can shore up their rearguard then positive results will soon follow.

"He (Jackett) was only in for a day before the Reading game, but he has already got us more organised, so we are only going to get better as a team, so we can't wait to work with him," Taylor told

"We've been scoring goals and we've had to score a lot of goals to win a game but I think if we defend better as a team and keep more of a solid shape, then we will definitely start winning games.

The 24-year-old has three goals to his name so far this season but says he will only begin to enjoy his contribution in front of goal when the end result of the game is a victory.

"I don't care about scoring a few goals because they have not counted for anything," Taylor stressed.

"If I score and it earns us points, then I will be happy. Obviously, it's been hard so far because we've been at the bottom of the league and we only have a few points but I'm confident that I can score a few more and as a side, we can start climbing the league."
After late heartbreak against Reading and latterly Ipswich Town, Taylor is keen to set the record straight at the weekend and says the mood in camp remains buoyant ahead of the clash with Preston North End on Saturday.

"It's devastating to concede in the last few minutes of the game, but I thought we defended well and better than we did in the previous games," Taylor added.

"The lads were full of belief that we were going to get a result, but unfortunately it did not work out for us. However, our performance will hold us in good stead going forward."
