TAY­LOR FOL­LOWS IN OWEN’S FOOT­STEPS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

SHREWS­BURY winger Jon Tay­lor has fol­lowed Michael Owen’s lead in a bid to stay off the treat­ment ta­ble.

Tay­lor was told he needed a her­nia op­er­a­tion and had suf­fered groin prob­lems be­fore he was fit­ted with an or­thotic in­sole to counter the fact one leg is longer than the other.

“I was tak­ing painkillers and in­jec­tions to get through games. I went to see a guy in Stoke who has worked with play­ers like Michael Owen,” he said.

“I got mea­sured out for the in­soles and, since then, I’ve worked hard do­ing loads of ex­er­cises and it’s felt a lot bet­ter.”
