Shearer Thanks Taylor For Support

Shearer Thanks Taylor For Support

Wycombe keeper Scott Shearer has been talking about his start to the season.

During the first few games of the campaign, an element of the Blues' fans made it clear that they would prefer it if he wasn't selected to play.

Shearer told the Bucks Free Press 'It was a bit weird and it hurt'

'It wasn't nice to hear and it wasn't a good time for me to hear it because I was a bit short of confidence. I'd only had one full 90 minutes after my injury and it was the last thing I needed.'

Manager Peter Taylor had faith in Shearer and has been rewarded by the keeper's fine record so far this season.

Wycombe have only conceded two goals in seven games and Shearer has made some important saves. None more so than the two late saves against Dagenham last Saturday, which enabled 10 man Wycombe to hold out for a 2-1 victory.

Shearer is grateful for Taylor's support, 'That gave me a massive boost of confidence. The supporters wanted Jamie Young to play ahead of me and it would have been easy for the manager to drop me and keep the fans happy, but he publicly stood by me and it was a big lift.'

Another clean sheet from Shearer would be most welcome tomorrow, as the Blues take on league leaders Bury at Gigg Lane.
