STRIKER Keshi Anderson has paid tribute to strike duo Marc Richards and Kaiyne Woolery after they both notched in the club’s 3-0 win over Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday evening.

The former Crystal Palace man said that while Richards may not have been on the scoresheet as regularly as he was last term, that does not mean he isn’t contributing on the pitch.

The 36-year-old has been under pressure in recent weeks after manager Phil Brown continued to start the striker, despite his lack of goals.

However, after scoring at Home Park earlier this week, Anderson says that should relieve some pressure on Richards, even though in his opinion he provides far more than goals to the team and warrants his place in the side.

"As strike partners, I look to set Richards up as much as possible and he does the same for me,” he said.

“He was the one who gave me the ball to burst through. He hasn’t been under firing because sometimes the keeper has pulled off a good save.

“In certain games he has come away with an assist so it’s not always about scoring goals, if the team are winning and he’s putting in good performances then he deserves to be where he is.

“I picked the ball up from Richards on Tuesday, it was good hold-up play from him, once I broke the line I didn’t think I was going to be caught.

“I saw the keeper, he wasn’t really on his toes, so I just toe poked it as a gamble that he wouldn’t be ready for it and he wasn’t."

Woolery marked his first appearance of the season with a goal after recovering from a knee injury which required surgery over the summer.

Last term, Woolery was a mainstay in the team of former boss David Flitcroft but struggled to find the back of the net despite regular minutes.

Anderson, who was also featured frequently for Town last season says the whole squad were delighted for Woolery after his goal.

“I’m buzzing for Kaiyne. Everyone has been waiting for him to come back and he’s been training with us for the last two or three weeks now,” added Anderson, who says he is happy to play anywhere in the team.

“Once we have a full squad at full strength that is better for everyone because we can pick up some points.

“Now he’s got 30 minutes under his belt and hopefully he can be involved again on Saturday and make another impact like he did.

“I’m comfortable anywhere across the front and in midfield to be honest. Last year I was playing in midfield quite a bit.

“This year I have been on the win and on Tuesday I played where I liked to play, which is in the hole just behind the strikers so I can create more.

“But a position is a position, you end up drifting across the pitch anyway.

“Everyone is in the squad for a reason. You know exactly what you’re going to get from Richards, Elijah Adebayo, Jermaine McGlashan and Woolery.”
