ASH Taylor is no closer to establishing himself as a one-position specialist than he was a year ago - after impressing in two roles with Tranmere this season.
The 20-year-old has seen himself as a centre back since progressing through the youth ranks into the first team at Prenton Park.
But he also fits comfortably into a defensive midfield role devised by manager Les Parry, in which he operates just in front of the centre backs.
Taylor became a regular in the midfield role after Ian Goodison and Mark McChrystal established a steady partnership at centre back after the turn of the year. But he returned to the backline when Goodison was suspended and when McChrystal was forced out of the Easter game against Exeter City by injury.
Taylor said: "First and foremost I like to play rather than be on the bench so switching roles is something I will always be willing to do.
"I feel as though centre back is my natural position but a holding midfield role is a job that comes quite easily to me.
“The important thing is helping the team get the results."
