Reaction | Bruce Anderson Post Match

“I am very pleased.

“Being a sub coming on, you want to have a big impact in the game.

“I am just happy that I managed to score a goal.

“I am very pleased for Connor as well. He has been working hard this season. We are both happy that we have managed to contribute today.

“For my goal I just remember the ball dropping and thinking I need to get through and score and luckily enough I managed to slide it in.

“It is important that everyone in the squad contributes towards scoring goals. There has been a lot of pressure on Sam as the main goalscorer. We need to help and take some pressure off him. We have to get goals from other areas of the pitch as well.

“We knew before the game that it would be a battle with a lot of balls in the air. It is a good three points and now we can look forward to Hearts on Sunday.

“I have been patient all season, working hard behind closed doors.

“I am just delighted that I have managed to get the chance and hopefully I have done enough going into the next game.

“I am desperate to play. I am desperate to score goals. But I trust the manager and what he is doing with me.

“I just have to keep on working hard and keep my head right and to make sure that I am ready whenever I am called upon.

“I try and stay off social media as much as I can. I get asked from friends and family, asking me if I have seen some of the support from the fans. It is nice to know that but for me I just want to keep my head down and work hard and when the opportunities do come, I need to take them.

“It is difficult trying to force my way into the first team.

“I have to keep learning. I can learn off of big Sam. We have got quite a good relationship. I try and take as much as I can from his game even if we are different builds and different sort of strikers.

“For me I just want to work hard, take as much as I can from training each day and when opportunities do come, I need to take them.

“It is a learning opportunity and a challenge, and I just need to try and focus on making a big impact when I come on.

“I learn everyday in training playing against the likes of Scott McKenna, Ash Taylor and Joe Lewis. I just want to keep my head down and score as much as I can when I come on.

“I have scored four hat-tricks for the reserve side and 20 goals. Not that I am counting!

“I do speak to the manager and we have conversations. I just need to trust what he is doing with me and when he feels I am right to go on he will play me.

“Now I need to kick on. That is the biggest thing. I got an opportunity today and hopefully when the new year comes I will get more opportunities to show what I can do.”
