Defender gives post-match reaction following Cheltenham draw
Grecians centre-half Jordan Moore-Taylor admitted that it was nice to notch his first goal as a pro, as he opened the scoring in the 1-1 draw against Cheltenham Town at St James Park.
But as pleased as he was to have found the net, he was also disappointed that he and the defence couldn’t boast a clean-sheet to complement his maiden goal.
“It’s nice to get the first one out the way,” said Jordan. “Unfortunately we couldn’t get the three points which we need, with the results going the way they did, but it was nice to get my goal.
“As a defender you don’t really focus on goals – you normally worry about the other end. It would have been nice to get a clean sheet and let someone else get the goal. I got the goal, and it’s unfortunate we couldn’t keep a clean sheet.
“Coming here as a youngster and as a fan, you always think about scoring in front of the Big Bank rather than the away end! So that was nice.”
He also insists that City’s fate is theirs to decide. With four games remaining in Sky Bet League 2, it’s all to pay for with teams bunched around the lower reaches of the table.
He said: “We worked well as a team and got the ball forward and put their back four under pressure, which we don’t always do at home. So things are looking up.
“At the moment we’re still out of the relegation zone, so it’s still in our hands. We just have to focus on getting three points ourselves and to go from there.
“It’s bunched up and still in our hands, and it’s up to us to turn out the wins when we need them.”
