Wigan's Taylor: Mum will go for Everton

Wigan Athletic wing-back Ryan Taylor admits there's torn loyalties within his family ahead of tonight's match against Everton.

The Liverpool-born full-back is intent on getting on the wrong side of his mum, who has her own agenda.

"She is an Evertonian but I am sure she will be rooting for me, " he explained. "I have lots of friends and family coming from the area, so it is a big game for everyone and the club."

Taylor is hoping to retain his place in the side after scoring in the 2-2 draw against Newcastle.

He told the club's official website: "To start was really pleasing - to score was even better. It will be a good atmosphere against Everton and good to get the nod again."
