Tranmere Rovers' Ash Taylor relieved to be injury free

Tranmere utility player Ash Taylor says he is delighted to be fit again after recovering from a knee injury.

Taylor made his comeback in the 2-0 defeat by Huddersfield in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday.

"It's great to be back but it's not the best result to come back to," Taylor told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"I was surprised, I thought I was going to get a reserve game under my belt, but when Les [Parry] named the team I was surprised to play in midfield."

The 20-year-old suffered a torn cartilage in his knee during pre-season in July and admits he did have doubts about the speed of his recovery.

"I did a lot of training and got involved with the lads and focussed on my progression," Taylor added.

"John Welsh is the captain and an experienced lad, and he's had his injuries as well. He said to stay happy about the place and just focus on the future.

"It's good to be back and I'm eager to get involved."
