RUFC - Mullen challenge to Taylor

RUFC - Mullen challenge to Taylor

Rotherham United striker, Ryan Taylor has suffered a few setbacks in his career but, this time, has been challenged by Assistant Manager, Jimmy Mullen to be an important part of the clubs push for promotion.

Twenty-two year old Ryan has been with the Millers since a trainee, making his first team debut from the subs' bench in December 2005. The following season he was becoming a regular in the side but was hit by glandular fever which knocked him sideways for a while. His previous form wasn`t really regained and he was sent out on loan to Burton Albion by former boss Mark Robins. When Ronnie Moore took charge of the Millers, Ryan was sent out on loan again to Exeter City where he became quite a favourite down there, returning to Rotherham for the play-offs at the end of last season. He made an immediate impact and scored the two Wembley goals making him a good prospect for this season.

Unfortunately, he has to kick a ball yet this season as he injured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot during pre-season training and, it was expected, that he would be out for around five months. But Ryan has made good progress and is expected to return to full training today.

Speaking to Dom Howson of The Star, before the game on Saturday, Jimmy Mullen said, 'Ryan starting kicking a ball this week which is great news for us.

'He`s been working hard with physio, Dennis Circuit and he isn`t far off coming back and it would be massive for us if he can come back and perform anywhere near the level he did in the play-offs.`
