martin Taylor looks upon his move to Sheffield Wednesday as a possible springboard back to the Premier League for him.
The centre-half played for five years in the top flight - three with Blackburn and two with Birmingham, who bought him for £1.25 million.
He has switched to Hillsborough from Championship rivals Watford but yearns to return to the top division and believes that the Owls are capable of getting there.
“In any profession everyone wants to play at the
top; I would love to get back in there, and it would be fantastic to get back there with Wednesday,” the 32-year-old defender told The Star. “Since I’ve come in I’ve seen the quality of the players, their workrate and the way they apply them
selves. It shows we have a great chance this year.”
Taylor also takes into account the atmosphere at the club and their progress under Dave Jones and thought the team were unlucky to lose their unbeaten record at Crystal Palace.
He also said: “It’s a tough league and you
have to put a good run together. The lads will have to pick themselves up and push on again.
“There are a lot of strong teams. It shows the quality that was already there when the teams who have come down have not had it all their own way.
“And the teams who have come up are strong. From what I’ve seen, I think we’ll be at the right end.
“There’s not a lot between the middle of the table and those who go up. Hopefully we can stay in that top six and push on.”
