Teenage goalscoring sensation Keshi Anderson continued his fine form for Doncaster by bagging the winner in last night’s 2-1 win over Shrewsbury.
In what was new boss Darren Ferguson’s first game in charge of Rovers, Anderson secured a dramatic 87th minute victory for the visitors after going into the half-time interval all square at 1-1.
Donny had put themselves into an early lead through the vastly experienced James Coppinger, before the Shrews drew level 13 minutes later thanks to Knight-Percival, but it was left until just before the death for Keshi to put the game to bed with what is quickly becoming a trademark ruthless streak in front of goal.
Having already been earmarked for a hugely successful career by his new boss, Anderson has rapidly endeared himself to the regulars at the Keepmoat Stadium, all of whom appear to believe that they have a potential star on their hands until January at the very least.
With last night’s goal showcasing his natural flair inside the penalty area, you would assume that Alan Pardew and his coaches will be keeping an ever more watchful eye on Keshi’s progress, with a potential first-team opportunity up for grabs in the new year if he continues to perform as consistently for the remainder of his loan spell.
It may seem a little extreme to suggest that a player of Anderson’s limited experience could make his top flight bow before the season is over, but in truth, natural finishers are a truly rare commodity with the best of them able to adapt to almost any environment when given the correct backing; just cast a glance in the direction of Leicester’s Jamie Vardy for proof of that.
