Moore relishing challenge at Southend United

Currently part of a five-match unbeaten league run, it's fair to say Taylor Moore is enjoying life on the coast.

The defender has been a prominent figure for the Shrimpers this season, having featured eight times in his loan spell to date.

He has only been on the losing side twice in that time too, once in the Sky Bet League One and Checkatrade Trophy.

"It’s going very well," the 21-year-old told bcfc.co.uk

"I first played in the Checkatrade Trophy win against Cambridge United and since then I have started every game. I am playing a lot which is a challenge but that’s the reason I am here.

"Last season, I played a lot of games at Cheltenham Town and this is a higher level now, a level where I am happy to be playing.

"We lost my first league game against Shrewsbury Town which was a third defeat in a row so morale was low but we have won four and drawn one game in our last five matches. We have put in some good performances both home and away too, which are key."

Those results have seen Southend United rise to ninth in League One and the defender says anything is possible, in terms of the Shrimpers' aims come the end of the campaign.

"We were in a difficult position to begin with but we have climbed up the table. I think we need to carry on playing as we are and I think we can be in or around the play-offs.

"With the work rate and ethic in this squad, I feel anything is achievable but anything can happen in football. But the manager (Chris Powell) is top class, as are the staff and I’ve been playing well. I have carried on my form from pre-season and I just want to continue carrying that on."

Southend extended their unbeaten league run to five games, as Moore helped them to a clean sheet in a 2-0 away win against Gillingham. Striker Shawn McCoulsky got a 10-minute run-out.

Elsewhere from the weekend:

Antoine Semenyo, Tyreeq Bakinson, Cameron Pring - Semenyo struck a 98th-minute winner with his first league goal for Newport County, as they beat Stevenage 2-1. Bakinson suffered a dead leg, while Pring was an unused substitute.

Jonny Smith - Helped Tranmere to a 1-0 win against Macclesfield Town.

Opi Edwards, Jake Andrews, Saikhou Janneh, Connor Lemonheigh-Evans - Andrews scored and assisted in Torquay United's 4-2 win against Eastbourne Borough. Edwards and Janneh also featured, but Lemonheigh-Evans was on international duty Wales Under-21s.

Alhaji Sesay - The keeper helped Dorchester Town to a 1-1 draw v Walton Casuals.

Harvey Smith - The centre-back captained and scored for Hereford as they drew 1-1 with Stockport County.

And James Morton completed 90 minutes in his return from injury during Bath City's 2-0 away win over St Albans City.
