Corey pleased with his brace and win in the FA Cup

2 December 2019

Forward Corey Blackett-Taylor is pleased that patience was decisive as Tranmere Rovers scored five second-half goals to beat Chichester City 5-1 at Prenton Park on Sunday.

Blackett-Taylor struck two goals, either side of Morgan Ferrier’s hat-trick, with Micky Mellon’s men clinical in the closing half hour in front of the BT Sport cameras.

The 22-year-old, alongside strike-partner Ferrier, inspired Tranmere to a victory which will see them take part in the third-round for a second campaign in a row.

And Blackett-Taylor shared his delight when he offered his thoughts to the local media after the cup tie.

Blackett-Taylor said: “I’m very pleased, but it is more important that we got the win and we are through to the next round though.

“It’s always tough playing teams like that as we knew that they were full of energy. We knew that we had to stick at it and that our chances would come, and our quality showed in the second-half.

“We just had to stick to the game plan, stay patient and show our quality at the right times.

“I was disappointed not to get the goal in the first-half, so the chances I had in the second-half, I had to take them and I’m glad that I did.

“Once we got the first one, we just got the momentum, and I’m glad that we are through.”

Blackett-Taylor is eyeing a tie against one of the Premier League big boys ahead of tonight’s draw, which will be televised on BBC Two.

He added: “We’re looking forward to the draw, and hopefully that we’ll go and get someone big.

“The fans would love us to prove ourselves against the best players in the world. Hopefully we’ll get a good draw and show what we can do.

“Overall it was a good performance and we’re looking forward to the next round.”
