Blackett-Taylor: "It’s time to push on now"

Corey Blackett-Taylor is ready to push on having returned to action during Tuesday’s victory over Gillingham.

The wideman had been absent for five weeks owing to a hamstring injury, but returned to Johnnie Jackson’s starting XI in midweek as the Addicks recorded a first win in eight.

Speaking to the assembled press post-match, Blackett-Taylor said: “We’ve been working hard all week to try and get the win. The last few games have not been up to standard so it’s good to get the win.

“It’s time to push on now, we have looked at the fixtures and know we’re getting players back now. We’re feeling much stronger, so it’s time to push on and keep winning.”

Having come through 88 minutes against the Gills unscathed, the 24-year-old is now looking to maintain his impressive form of late.

“I’ve been out for five weeks, but I’m just glad that I was able to come back and play as long as I did,” he explained.

“I wasn’t expecting to stay on for that long, but I felt good and I just wanted to keep on going.

“I feel great,” added the former England youth international.

“Just before I got injured I felt I was picking up a bit of form and I was happy with how I was playing before the injury, so I need to try and keep that momentum and get back to how I was playing before. I want to show that I can play like that more consistently by keeping my performances at that level and hopefully keep winning with the team.

“We need to take every game as it comes, obviously we have our targets but the best way to approach them is by taking every game as it comes and by playing how we did [against Gillingham].”
