Aaron Taylor-Sinclair says he is looking forward to hopefully being involved in a Stafforshire/Cheshire derby at Vale Park this weekend. The on-loan Motherwell defender is likely to deputise for the injured Harry Pickering (hernia) following on from his goal and Man-of-the-Match performance against Cheltenham Town last weekend.
Taylor-Sinclair has had to wait patiently for his chance since returning to the EFL from Scotland but he has grasped his opportunity with both hands.
Ahead of this week’s trip to Vale Park, Taylor-Sinclair said: “I knew I would have to wait for my chance because when I arrived the team was flying and had gone so many games unbeaten. I wanted to come here and play as many games as I could and that is still the objective with six games left.
“I want to play as many games as I can and then take it from there. I’ve not really had a conversation with my agent regarding my future. I just want to play and then we will see.
“There are six games to go and we will go out to win every game. That is how we approach things here and we know how much the derby means to the fans.
“It is like any other game because you want to win the three points but with a derby it is always that little bit bigger because of what is at stake for the supporters.
“The kit man told me after the game on Saturday that Port Vale had won 1-0 at our ground earlier in the season and he left me in no doubt about what it means to the fans and how we have to get one up on them again.
“I am sure it will be frantic for the first 15, 20 minutes but after the game settles down, I am sure we will get down to playing our football. I’m looking forward to being involved and the players here are used to playing in front of big and hostile crowds. Although some of them are young lads, there is a lot of experience in the group.”
