Rotherham United winger Jon Taylor told Radio Sheffield that before today’s game with Scunthorpe he’d have taken a draw.

‘The game is over two legs,’ Tayls, who opened the scoring this afternoon, said after the two-two draw, ‘the first one is over and done with and we’ve got ninety minutes to play at home now.

‘We took the lead twice and we are a bit disappointed that we conceded but we’ve got to take everything into the second leg.

‘We are a bit disappointed that we haven’t won today but we’ve got to forget that now and take all the confidence into the game on Wednesday which is the biggest game of our season.

‘I couldn’t see one empty seat, our fans were unbelievable. It was an amazing atmosphere.’

Speaking about his goal, the twenty-five year old said, ‘I like to make runs behind the defence and (Matty) Palmer found me and I had the idea to volley it but I looked up and saw the near post and tapped it in.’

Tayls was taken off just after the hour mark, ‘I got a dead leg in the first half,’ he said, ‘and it felt a bit stiff in the second half and I couldn’t really get going.’

Joe Newell came on for Tayls and scored with his first touch with the Millers winger saying, ‘I was over the moon for him.

‘I can’t wait for Wednesday, under the lights at the New York Stadium, it’s something we all thrive on. I love big games. I’ve never played at Wembley and I’d do anything to play there.’
