Nottingham Forest gem Dale Taylor has helped Burton Albion preserve their status as a League One football club.
The Reds talisman was in action once again last night on a memorable night for the Brewers.
Taylor joined Burton in January on a six-month loan. He has become a regular in the team and looks a bright prospect.
The 19-year-old has taken well to men’s action. He’s scored five goals for the Brewers and now they will remain in the third tier.
Taylor was substituted in the second half last night and the Burton Mail claimed he was starved of service.

Still, his form at the Pirelli Stadium has been largely impressive and he’s become a fan favourite.
Taylor is a really exciting player that is coming through the Forest ranks.
If the Reds go down this season, there is every reason to believe that Steve Cooper might hand him a chance during 2023/24.
The youngster is built like a man and shows strength like a mature, seasoned professional.
Last season he was integral as the Reds reached the FA Youth Cup Final and now he’s trying to prove himself in the professional game.
Taylor has helped Burton remain in League One
This is a nice little scenario to tick off for Taylor and he can now relax ahead of the last two fixtures.
It’s quite remarkable that Burton have managed to survive relegation, given they have one of the smaller budgets in the division.
Taylor should go to the very top. At the very least, he looks set to make the grade with the Forest senior ranks and he’s got all the attributes.
David Healy managed Taylor at Linfield. He called him ‘exceptional’ and ‘talented’ after he scored at the age of 15 in Northern Ireland.
Taylor will be buzzing to help Burton achieve the seemingly impossible.
Now, he will have his sights on a return to Forest and surely he will be desperate to prove himself at the City Ground.
