CHRIS TAYLOR scored the winner after just two minutes against Sheffield United last Saturday – and he revealed he made up his mind to join Millwall for a second time just as quickly.

Taylor signed a loan deal until the end of the season last Thursday before Neil Harris put him straight into his starting XI against the Blades.

The 29-year-old winger’s last appearance had been for Blackburn in February when he was sent off in an FA Cup tie at West Ham.

Taylor played for Millwall after joining from Oldham in 20112 before leaving for Blackburn a year later. He was eager to make the move back when the club contacted him and he said he settled in quickly in familiar surroundings.

“It was a few weeks ago I found that they were interested to see if I was interested in coming back,” Taylor explained. “Obviously I wasn’t playing much football and this is a club that I really like and have fond memories of from the last time I was here.

“I wanted to join as soon as possible, really. As soon as Blackburn gave me the green light I spoke to Neil pretty much the same day and all the vibes were positive.

“The Oldham and Millwall results are the two I always look for straight after a game. I’m always in contact with Mark Beevers so I knew they were having a good season here.

“There were others here from my previous spell like David Forde, Jimmy Abdou, young lads like Aiden O’Brien were just coming through.

“I played with Dave Livermore at Oldham for a season so I knew both him and Neil reasonably well. I slotted in quite easily.

“I trained Thursday and then Friday and a game Saturday. The staff and the lads made me feel so welcome. The transition was very easy and quick and it had to be anyway.

“It couldn’t have gone any better for me, really.”
