Moore determined to seize opportunity

Taylor Moore is eyeing his chance with City this season.

The centre-back made his first start in three years in the season opener against Leeds United last weekend, when he partnered Tomas Kalas in the heart of defence.

It was a proud moment for the 22-year-old defender and he’s aiming to get better and better as the campaign continues.

A trip to Birmingham City is next up for the Robins and it’s potentially another opportunity for Moore to impress, following positive feedback from Lee Johnson on Sunday.

Competing for his place

“It had been a while [since my last City appearance] but I would do it all again,” Moore told the club website. “It has been an incredible journey for me, a long wait but I really enjoyed being out there in a Bristol City shirt on Sunday.”

He is aware of the competition in the squad and more so at centre-back after Adam Webster’s departure last week.

But it’s a good thing to have with the players all focused on the team goal.

Moore said: “There is a lot of competition, there is all over the pitch and everyone here knows that. With the group of boys we have here, it is healthy competition. Everybody wants the team to do well and the team comes first.

“From my personal point of view, I need to kick on and really show the manager, the staff, the players here that I have learned a lot in the past few seasons out on loan, that I am able to play in this Bristol City team. Hopefully with game experience in the Championship I can have a really good season.”

HEADS! Moore beats Patrick Bamford to the ball.

"From my personal point of view, I need to kick on and really show the manager, the staff, the players here that I have learned a lot in the past few seasons out on loan, that I am able to play in this Bristol City team.

"...I’m very glad to be back here at Bristol City. It is where I want to be."

Learning from his loan spells

Since his arrival in BS3 in August 2016, Moore has enjoyed loan spells at Bury, Cheltenham Town and most recently, Southend United.

These experiences have benefitted him greatly but now he’s determined to develop in the Sky Bet Championship.

“I think it (Southend United loan) is exactly what I needed; to go out and play just short of 40 games for Southend, a very good club who I will always hold very high in my estimations,” he added.

“I really enjoyed my time there from day one right to the very end. We ended staying up in League One in quite dramatic circumstances. I absolutely love the club but I’m very glad to be back here at Bristol City. It is where I want to be.”

City travel to St Andrew’s Stadium for matchday two of the 2019/20 Sky Bet Championship this Saturday (August 10th, 3pm).
