Anderson Looking Forward To Swans Clash

Anderson Looking Forward To Swans Clash

Former loanee Paul Anderson is looking forward to playing against his former team-mates this afternoon when Swansea City visit the City Ground.

The pacy Liverpool right wing enjoyed a successful season last year, playing a vital role as we won the League One title.

We were all hoping he'd spend another season with us on loan, but instead he opted to join Nottingham Forest.

Anderson didn't begin his season until October, after a picking up a thigh strain. This meant he missed the first game between the two sides at the Liberty Stadium in August, we won 3-1.

Anderson is looking to impress today, he said:

'I was so disappointed to miss last time, I am desperate for this one.

'I missed out on going back there so I am looking forward to it, will get focused and hopefully I will get a good reception.

'I think the fans were a bit disappointed when I did not go back but that is football, people have to move on and I had to widen my experience.

'I am enjoying it here and I hope we get the three points.

'I was out for about a month with the break, have come back and was low on match fitness against Derby.

'But the last two games I have picked up. I feel they have been my best two games for the club since I have been here.'

Anderson also admitted he has been surprised with Swansea's continued success this year, he added:

'I am a little bit surprised,'

'But they have always been a good footballing side and simply dominated League One last season.

'This season they have played really well, are scoring goals for fun and play great football. They are one of the best footballing sides in the league but we will work hard, get in their faces and hopefully perform like we have been doing and be the dominant side.

'They have been drawing a lot but are up there and in with a shout of a play-off place. All the best to them with that and I wish the manager, staff and players well. I just want us to get the win.'

Paul Anderson will be up against left back Alan Tate today, and hopefully he can keep him relatively quiet for most of the game.
