Steve Evans comments on how Charlie Taylor coped against Robert Snodgrass

Leeds United East Stand

Steve Evans has hailed Leeds left back Charlie Taylor.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans has told BBC Radio Leeds that he thought Charlie Taylor played well against Hull City's Robert Snodgrass on Saturday.

The Whites snatched a 2-2 draw at The KC Stadium as Stuart Dallas swooped in the 88th minute to earn Leeds a point, having been 1-0 up and then 2-1 down against the Tigers.

It was a respectable point for Leeds, and the game also saw winger Robert Snodgrass take on his former club four years after leaving Elland Road.

Scotland international Snodgrass, 28, spend four years at Leeds, becoming an Elland Road hero with 41 goals in 193 games for the club before leaving for Norwich City in 2012.

Now at Hull, Snodgrass was pitted against Leeds' young left back Charlie Taylor, who again showed his quality with a fine performance against the former Leeds star.

Taylor, 22, looks destined for the Premier League at some stage in his career, having produced a host of impressive performances this season, with another one up against the dangerous Snodgrass on Saturday.

After the final whistle, Leeds boss Steve Evans told BBC Radio Leeds that he feels Taylor is moving closer and closer to reaching the potential that many believe he has, having performed so well going forward and defensively against Hull this weekend.

Evans added that before the game, he joked with Taylor that the way to look after Snodgrass would've been to take him down to the beach - but he was impressed with how Taylor coped against the winger.

"I think Snodgrass is top class, and I said to Charlie tongue-in-cheek today that if he's looking after Snodgrass, why doesn't he take him down to the beach for the day and we'll go with ten v ten," said Evans. "But Charlie Taylor has done his job, and I think Charlie Taylor is now getting very, very close to the level that everyone was talking about in terms of how good he can be. It's how well he played, he got up and down the pitch, he defended and he's another Cook - he's a fantastic kid to manage," he added.
