Charlton Athletic striker Lyle Taylor has liked an Instagram message from Derby County’s Kelle Roos calling for the Rams to build on their momentum this weekend.

The Rams head to The Valley looking to preserve a five-game unbeaten run which has seen Phillip Cocu’s men gain confidence and climb the Championship table.

Roos says it’s good to be back and calls on his side to keep moving forward – a message which Charlton’s Lyle Taylor reacted to ahead of their upcoming showdown.

Taylor and Roos are former teammates at AFC Wimbledon.

Derby’s Dutch goalkeeper made 17 appearances while on loan there in 2016.

 

Taylor, meanwhile, spent three seasons with The Dons as he looked to rebuild his career. The striker scored over 40 goals for the club as Wimbledon won promotion to League One.

The 29-year-old joined Charlton in 2018, and he became a huge hit with the club. Scoring 21 goals, Taylor helped the Addicks to promotion back to the Championship.

And he doesn’t look out of place in the second tier with five goals in six starts this term. However, a knee ligament injury has kept the striker out of action since August.

Taylor won’t feature for Charlton tomorrow. However, he will likely be in the stands at The Valley hoping his side can stick a few past former teammate Roos in Derby’s goal.
