Speaking to the club’s official website Taylor said:
“Great news, what people have got to realise is when you get people on loan, nine times out of ten it’s because they haven’t played enough Football.
“In Joe’s case that certainly is the case; he was sub a few times at Charlton and hadn’t played competitive Football but now all of a sudden he has come to us, started a couple of games and every time he plays he looks as though he’s going to score.
“He’s a really good finisher and if people were to see him in training he’s a tremendous finisher so I have no doubt he will be getting fitter, enjoying the experience and working with us.
“We are absolutely delighted that we’ve got him for another month.”
The timing has proved to be good with Danny Kedwell suffering a slight setback during the week which could keep him out of action for at least another week.
He had to be substituted during the club’s development game against Luton – the Manager describing it as the only negative to what was otherwise an encouraging display.
He said: “It was a good game and it just shows you how strong Luton’s squad is because they are absolutely flying in the Conference. A lot of players there would, to me, get in to League One or Two teams and that shows what a strong squad John Still has there.
“Lots of the young boys played and did well there – Callum got a game, Charlie Lee had 90 minutes, the goalkeepers shared the time but the only negative on the performance was Danny having to come off.”
Gary Borrowdale also played 90 minutes and Peter feels the defender isn’t far away from first team consideration.
while since he last played a match but his left foot is as good as ever, his fitness has still got to get better but he’s working extremely hard with James to get that right. He said: “He had 90 minutes, I’m sure he will be pleased with that now – he might have found it tough because it’s been a
“He played the first half as a left centre half and the second half at left back. He’s a very knowledgeable footballer that plays the ball forward really nicely.
“Hopefully two weeks, hopefully we don’t need him and the back four do well but he’s just a handy individual to have around if you need a left back or centre half.”
