Myles Anderson targets Aldershot first team place
On loan Aldershot defender Myles Anderson has set his sights on winning a place in the first team.
The 22-year-old Blackburn player made his debut for the Shots as a late substitute in the League Two win over Plymouth on Saturday.
He told BBC Surrey: "I've enjoyed my time at Blackburn but there comes a point when you think first team games is where you want to be.
"Aldershot have given me an opportunity and I'll fight for my place here."
He added: "I'm settling in well and the guys have been really welcoming to me.
"Hopefully I can push for a starting place, get myself in the team and express myself on the pitch."
The centre-back, who joined Aldershot last week on an initial one-month loan deal, has not made a senior appearance for Rovers since moving to the club last summer.
"The way pre-season was going, it was looking like I wasn't in contention for a starting role," he continued.
"A few new players were coming into Blackburn and I wasn't sure whether I'd be guaranteed at least a place on the bench.
"I've heard a lot of good things about the manager down here [Dean Holdsworth] and I felt the timing was right to go out on loan and show what I've got. I'm looking forward to the challenge."
