Eagles loanee looking to keep flying high.Keshi Anderson has told supporters that there’s more to come from him as he looks to make his mark on league football.
The 20 year old Crystal Palace loanee has had quite a week to remember – making his Football League debut against Sheffield United, prior to registering his first Football League goal against Swindon Town – and hopes that Eagles boss Alan Pardew is watching!
“The main reason I’m here is because Alan Pardew has called me in to his office and he personally thinks I should come here,” Anderson said.
“As I can’t play Under 21’s football next year, I need league football so the aim has been to do what I do, maybe score again on Saturday and hopefully I can go from there.
“I still think I can get better and then, who knows, he might come and watch?”
Anderson was honest in his appraisal of his own performances, as well as that of the team’s recent form.
“I still think that Saturday, at the start, I did well and then faded in the game. (Against Swindon) I didn’t start at my best but picked up in the second half and still believe I can do better. I don’t think I’m at my maximum at the moment, it’s quicker and sharper than 21’s so I’m hoping to get my sharpness and carry on scoring,” he revealed.
“All the lads are trying to take the positives in to Saturday and try and get the win.
“We’ve had some constructive criticism whereas other days it’s not been so constructive. We’re trying to stay together as a team and build on it going in to Saturday.
“Training’s been decent, we’ve had a bit of fun to get the mood up in camp and I’ve been able to express myself in small sided games and get on the ball, play how I want to play and the gaffer’s encouraged that and told me not to hold anything back.”
