Taylor still hankering after Notts County job

Peter Taylor is still keen on becoming Notts County's next manager.

Peter Taylor is still keen on becoming Notts County's next manager.

Dave Kevan has been in charge since Hans Backe's resignation in mid-December.

Former England Under-21 boss Taylor expressed his interest in the job at Meadow Lane just days after the Swede's departure.

Taylor was at Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday night to watch County's 3-0 win. However, the 57-year-old insists his presence at Victoria Road was merely a 'massive coincidence'.

"I live close to Dagenham so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to go and have a look at a game," said Taylor. "I always planned to go and watch Notts County so it was just a massive coincidence it was on the same night that the club announced its news about the investment.

Taylor added: "I have admitted my interest in the job before and that is still the case. I would be a liar to say I'm not interested in being manager at Notts County."
