Taylor – who joined the Championship club as back-up to Marco Silvestri in the summer – could do nothing about a wonderful volley from Charlton striker Tony Watt, who cancelled out Steve Morison’s opener for the away side at The Valley.
However, the keeper – who made a couple of decent saves during the game – became the villain when he brought Igor Vetokele down inside the box to allow Yoni Buyens to score the winner ten minutes from time.
Amazingly, it was only his 24th league appearance in the decade since he left us permanently. However, it could well be his last following the rash attempt at collecting the ball ahead of Vetokele.

Perhaps even more staggering, in that time since he was let go by us, he has doubled his tally of Premier League winners’ medals when he was part of the Manchester City squad that won the title in 2012, to add to the one he won ten years earlier.
