Cheltenham Town video: Dressing room was not a nice place to be - Taylor
JASON Taylor did not want to discuss specific details, but he admitted Cheltenham Town's dressing room after the 4-1 defeat at Bury was "not a nice place to be."
The former Rotherham United midfielder made his third consecutive start on Saturday, having asked for a loan move in the opening weeks of the season as he struggled to see a future for himself at the club.
He scored the winner at Accrington Stanley ten days ago and was then part of an admirable effort at West Ham United in the Capital One Cup last Tuesday, when Cheltenham were edged out 2-1 by the Premier League side.

Taylor was also praised for the way he filled in at centre-back against Bury, with Steve Elliott forced off in the first half after being knocked out cold by Marlon Jackson's elbow.
No-nonsense Taylor is certain to keep his place in the starting XI for tonight's Johnstone's Paint Trophy first round tie against Plymouth Argyle and he sees the match as an early chance to right some of the many wrongs from Gigg Lane.
"What happens in the dressing room has to stay there sometimes, but it wasn't a nice place to be after a result like that," he said.
"Hopefully what was said can help us turn things around because we should be doing a lot better than we have so far this season.
"We have another game to put things right straight away, which is what we need to do against Plymouth."
Boss Mark Yates is expected to give several players who have not featured much this season a chance to impress.
Taylor said: "Places are definitely up for grabs now and people need to take their chances.
"We all need to stick together after a bad result like that because you have spells like this at times and results will come.
"We have a good mix of youth and older players here and hopefully we can put things right."
Taylor is likely to move back into his favoured midfield role tonight, but he said he was happy to fill in at the back if required with defensive trio Elliott, Troy Brown (hamstring) and Craig Braham-Barrett (ankle) all ruled out.
"I had to fill in there due to injuries. I played there a bit in pre-season and I've played there over the years at times for various clubs," he said.
"You have to do what you have to do and I'll play wherever if it can help out the team."
