Taylor aiming for top-half finish after Birmingham City draw

CHRIS Taylor set his sights on a top-half finish after rescuing Millwall a point against Birmingham City on Saturday.

Taylor's second-half equaliser at St. Andrew's extended the Lions' unbeaten run in the league to six matches and the winger is hoping to make a strong finish to the season.

The 25-year-old, who was making his return from a groin injury, said: "It's great to be back playing – I could have had another goal or two but I think I did well overall.

"The main thing is the team and us finishing in the top 12, which is very achievable. It was quite an even game and I think 1-1 was about fair.

"Birmingham have some good players and could have gone ahead earlier but as the game went on we had chances of our own. We could even have won it with Sean St Ledger hitting the bar.

"But It's a good result for the lads – we've kept our unbeaten run going and that's really important."

Millwall face Sheffield Wednesday at The Den in midweek ahead of their FA Cup semi-final against Wigan and Taylor admits it will be difficult to put that showpiece game to the back of his mind.

"If you are honest, maybe we will [be thinking about Wigan] but we've got to do a professional job," he said. "After Tuesday the excitement will take over and our total focus will be on the big game.

"But every game is big to me – every game in the Championship. You can't get around how big the Wigan game is, there's no getting away from that.

"Every lad that played against Birmingham knows that if they put in a performance against Sheffield Wednesday they should have the shirt."

    Proving to be a quality player I thought he was ok before his injury but after s couple games it became obvious how much we missed him.
    I think his injury was s blessing in discuise,
    He's been immense since he came back and definately up for the fight. Top player
