Corey on his first goal and three points

13 October 2019

Match-winner Corey Blackett-Taylor feels Tranmere Rovers can build on Sunday’s 1-0 victory away to Coventry City at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium.

Blackett-Taylor struck the decisive goal for Micky Mellon’s men on 83 minutes, latching onto Kieron Morris’ flick on to drive left-footed from the left-side of the box into the far corner past Marko Marosi.

The three-points in the Midlands were Rovers’ first on their travels since returning to Sky Bet League One, a result which moves them up to 18th in the table.

And the 22-year-old, who returned to his home city to net the winner against the Sky Blues, says that things are starting to gel, following on from a summer of change at Prenton Park.

Blackett-Taylor said: “With the new players who have come in, we are starting to gel, and the togetherness that we have got now will hopefully get more results like this one, coming here away from home, it is a tough place to come and we can build on it.”

Reflecting on the winning goal, Blackett-Taylor was delighted to get on the score sheet, which was his first for the Club since his summer arrival from Aston Villa.

He added: “It was a long ball, and Kieron Morris flicked it on, and I was between the centre-back and the full-back, and I just managed to bring it under control and finish it in the bottom corner.

“It was from the left-hand side, and I just thought to try and keep it on target which I did, and I’m glad I did that.

“I work on finishing about three times a week, I do it after sessions, so I dedicate it to that.

“Defensively, it wasn’t working that well, so in the second-half we swapped it, and we looked more solid and it worked well as I managed to get a goal from it.

“I think that’s my strength to get the defender one-on-one and playing up front in the second-half allowed me to do that, and it worked well.”
