Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has warned European hero Ryan Taylor he may have to be patient as he attempts to force his way into the team after scoring the equaliser in their 1-1 draw with Atromitos.
The utility man was handed a start at left-back in Greece and produced a trademark free-kick to ensure the Magpies return to Tyneside for the second leg of their Europa League play-off with a potentially valuable away goal. However, Taylor could still find himself on the bench at Chelsea as Newcastle return to domestic action having rested nine senior men.
Pardew said: "When we trained here he [Taylor] hit three or four better than the one he scored with. I should think in the Premier League there are not too many players at dead balls who have the accuracy of Ryan."
