Doncaster Rovers: 'His stats are ridiculous' - James Coppinger talks Jon Taylor and their growing understanding
Some players just click together on the pitch – and it seems James Coppinger and Jon Taylor have found that at Doncaster Rovers.
The two attack-minded players have shown increasing understanding over the last few months, prior to the hamstring injury which kept Taylor out of action last weekend.
Their link-up play has been excellent, helping to release both deep into opposition territory and cause opposition defences plenty of problems
Coppinger says the pacy forward’s contribution is all the more remarkable given he missed pre-season entirely as he was without a club until signed by Rovers in mid-August. “His stats are ridiculous, with the amount of distance he covers,’’ said Coppinger.
