Winger not looking to give up his shirt now he's forced his way into the Town side
Paul Anderson is looking to keep his place in the Town side now he’s forced his way into the team, after waiting patiently for a start since joining the Blues from Bristol City.
The winger has featured regularly for Mick McCarthy’s side this term but began the campaign mainly coming off the bench, with skipper Carlos Edwards often preferred to start the games.
However the former Nottingham Forest man has managed to break into the side, starting the last two games, and now wants to remain as the first choice, although he understands the need for competition for places.
“It’s definitely important to have competition for places, especially in a league as demanding as the Championship,” Ando told the Club’s official YouTube channel.
“We’ve only got a small squad but everybody in that squad I feel is good enough to have their name in the starting line-up.
“I had to be patient for my chance because Carlos has been fantastic here for the past few years and it was his shirt in the first place.
“He did really well in the first few games and it wasn’t his performances that lost him his place in the team, it was just that we had only won one game and the manager felt it needed freshening up.
“That allowed me my chance in the team and I think I’ve done okay since I’ve been given the opportunity in the side.
“It’s now up to me to keep helping the team and try and hold onto the shirt.”
