Dale Taylor joined Burton Albion on loan from Nottingham Forest in January and it would appear that he’s already catching the eye of supporters.
The 19-year-old was allowed out by Forest as they bid to let a number of youngsters sample first-team football.
Taylor joined Aaron Donnelly and Ateef Konate in heading out on loan and the 19-year-old looks to be enjoying himself.
In four appearances for the Brewers, he’s scored a single goal and helped the team claim three wins from their last four games.
It’s not been his heroics in front of goal that have necessarily caught the eye, however, with his work rate already delighted the fan base.
On Saturday, Burton took on Exeter and in injury time, Taylor did something that is perhaps considered outside of his remit as a striker.
With the clock on 97 minutes and the Brewers on the cusp of a huge win, Taylor ran almost the length of the field to defend.
He went shoulder to shoulder with the Exeter forward before bundling him off the ball and winning a huge free kick for his team.
Taylor showcased unbelievable determination and a willingness to secure three points for his team and that hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Taylor is catching the eye of supporters
Make no bones about it, the youngster is going to go on and achieve great things in football.
Hopefully, he can achieve greatness at Forest, but for now, his time will be spent fighting for points in League One.
Taylor is built for the men’s game and he always gives his all every time he’s called upon.
The teenager has largely been playing as a striker for Burton but he’s capable of playing anywhere across the front three.
Taylor could already be onto a winner with the Forest fan base if this latest clip is anything to go by.
Forest fans absolutely love it when players work themselves into the ground. As a result, it would appear that Taylor is on the right track.
