LOAN WATCH: Crystal Palace striker Keshi Anderson opens Bolton account

Keshi Anderson scored his first goal on debut for loan club Bolton Wanderers on the weekend.

The 21-year-old striker, who is on a season-long loan deal from Crystal Palace, netted a 48th-minute equaliser as the Trotters drew 1-1 with Southend United at the Macron Stadium.

Harry Kyprianou had volleyed the Shrimpers into the lead after just three minutes but Anderson, who had started for Phil Parkinson, delivered three minutes into the second half.

The former Doncaster Rovers loanee received some great fortune when Southend midfielder Adam King, on loan from Swansea City, headed skyward with the ball bouncing off the hands of visiting keeper Ted Smith and in off Anderson's back.

Not the prettiest way to find the back of the net but it doesn't matter how they go in, according to the man himself.

The result saw Bolton remain two points clear of Bradford City at the top of the League One table after six matches while Phil Brown's Southend dropped into the relegation zone.

Bolton boss Parkinson was thrilled with the debut of Anderson, along with James Henry: “We're very pleased with the new players' contributions.

“I thought the lads came in, did well and gave us a bit of quality. James Henry and Keshi Anderson gave us a bit of brightness.

“It's never easy when you come in and you've only got Thursday to train, but we didn't train much because they'd all had a long day's travelling. Then only an hour yesterday but they're all intelligent players and I'm pleased with their contributions."
