GT praises keeper Anyon

23 January 2013

Gaffer impressed with Joe's attitude and approach

Graham Turner has praised the attitude of his No 2 goalkeeper Joe Anyon and says he would be prepared to allow the former Port Vale and Lincoln man out on loan.
 
Anyon has started just one first team match this season, the Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at home to Crewe Alexandra in October when he had to come of injured.
 
But otherwise he has had to settle for a place on the bench owing to the consistency of first choice Chris Weale.
 
GT said Anyon's approach to his role as back up keeper had impressed him. 
 
"Joe came in with the hope of getting a first team place and he's had to watch Chris Weale put in some terrific performances and play well," he said.
 
"Joe's attitude has never changed. He's been a terrific example in training, never a moment's problem with him, he's worked his socks off and I do have a bit of sympathy.
 
"If we could get Joe out on loan then I would do that because he needs some decent game time. He's been a model professional for me and you need that in a club where people don't accept the situation, they don't want to accept it, they want to be in the team abd they're working towards that goal.
 
"It's only the form of Chris Weale that has kept him out."
