ANDERSON KEEN TO MAKE AN IMPACT

20 February 2019

Jermaine Anderson is confident the Bantams can go one better on Saturday when David Hopkin’s side take on Walsall.

City head to the Banks’s Stadium having recorded a 0-0 draw at home against Plymouth Argyle.

Victory will take them above their opponents in the Sky Bet League One table, potentially as high as 17th place.

Anderson, whose match-winning effort - a sublime back-heel - was cleared off the line over the weekend, believes City can push on from Saturday’s stalemate.

The 22-year-old midfielder said: “We started the Plymouth game ok but, in the second half, we really came into our own.

“We pushed them all the way and were unlucky not to win.

“When you are pressing on the front foot, you always have a good chance to win and we were doing it well on Saturday.

“The gaffer wanted me to inject energy by getting myself into the box and trying to score.

“When you are called upon, you have to give 110% every time and I tried to do that.

“There are always times in a season where things are not falling for you.

“We haven’t scored as many goals as we would have liked to, but all the boys are working hard in training to try improve our fortunes.”

Anderson has featured twice while working his way into the matchday squad, following his January move from Peterborough United.

After appearing in Saturday’s game against Plymouth, the former Doncaster loanee is ready for more competitive action.

He added: “There are a bunch of quality players, especially in midfield, which gives healthy competition to players like me.

“The fans really got behind us on Saturday and it definitely helped as the game wore on.

“There are always moments where the crowd will get nervous in games like these.

“Unfortunately, we couldn’t quite get the goal needed but we played well and it sets us up nicely going down to Walsall.

“That game is massive for us. We need to go there and win, which is our main focus.

“We have been working hard, as we will for the rest of the week, and the boys will be ready when Saturday comes.

“The lads are working hard to improve our league position, which I am confident we will do, and we have to make sure that starts at Walsall.”
