Anderson Aiming to Impress Some Friendly Faces Now


Byline: By Phil BlancheWestern Mail

Being back on Merseyside with fit-again pair Leon Britton and Andy Robinson breathing down his neck is reason enough for Paul Anderson to perform at Tranmere today.

But the teenager loaned out to Swansea City by Liverpool at the start of the season has a special incentive to show what Merseyside's been missing - his girlfriend will today watch him play for the first time!

The 19-year-old flying machine has a growing army of fans at the Liberty Stadium due to his phenomenal pace and a scoring knack that has already brought him eight goals.

But, until now, all the fuss has been lost on Anderson's girlfriend Eleanor as she has been unable to see him in action.

The Liverpool-based student was due to watch him against Hartlepool last month, but that Liberty fixture was called off close to kick-off and she decided to wait until Anderson was closer to home.

"I'm looking forward to it as my girlfriend and her family are going to watch me for the first time," revealed Anderson, who also hopes to count on the support of a few old Liverpool friends at Prenton Park.

"They're not a massive football family... but hopefully I'll play well and won't look stupid.

"I play better when the pressure's on and you could say there'll be a bit of that with Eleanor sitting in the stand.

"We pretty much met at the end of last season and I only had a couple of games left for Liverpool reserves before I came down to Swansea.

"It is hard not seeing each other but when I get a day off I go back to Liverpool, and whenever she's got time off college she comes down to see me. We're both trying to make it work."

Anderson has certainly done that on the pitch as his goals and assists have proved crucial in Swansea striding into the League One play-off positions.

The Leicester-born wideman had already showed his goal-scoring ability as an early-season substitute before injuries to Britton and Robinson gave him and Tom Butler the chance to dazzle on the flanks.

Five goals in seven appearances made him a Swansea hero and he admits to having raised the bar when it comes to finding the back of the net.

"It's surprised me how many goals I've scored," said Anderson. "I'm on eight now and that probably would have been my target for the season at the start.

"I'd like to get to double figures sooner rather than later because that's a milestone.

" I've scored a few and been getting the man-of-the-match awards in the last couple of games, and it's always nice to be recognised in that way. …
