Taylor targeting instant reaction
30th December 2014
Neil Taylor insists the Swans must start the new year with the right result after ending 2014 on a losing note.
Garry Monk's side were handed their heaviest defeat of the current campaign by Liverpool as the Swans went down 4-1 at Anfield in what proved the final league fixture of the year.
Alberto Moreno scored the only goal of the first half before Lukasz Fabianski's clearance cannoned off Adam Lallana and into the net to double the Reds' lead.
Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled one back a minute later, only for Lallana and a Jonjo Shelvey own goal to kill off the Swans' hopes of a comeback.
The Swans sit in ninth position with 28 points at the halfway stage of the season with a trip to QPR getting 2015 underway on New Year's Day.
And Taylor feels the team needs to produce a positive reaction from the disappointing result on Merseyside.
"The result was very disappointing," said the Wales international. "They looked very good going forward, but we had chances at the other end.
"Unfortunate goals at unfortunate times cost us the game. It's a game where you have to say it's not our day and move on.
"We need to kick on from here and get a result at QPR. If we do then we can be pleased with how we have fared over the festive period.
"We can be happy with where we are in the league and with the points total, which is the most we have got at this stage in the Premier League.
"But now we have to build on that and pick up more points - starting at Loftus Road on New Year's Day."
