DARREN FERGUSON has only been at Doncaster Rovers for four days, but he has already seen enough of Keshi Anderson to state that he wants to keep him.

The promising performances of the Crystal Palace striker, whose initial month’s loan ends later this week, have provided a rare chink of light for Rovers fans.

During his time at Peterborough United, several forwards who started out in non-league, like Anderson, flourished under Ferguson and went on to bigger things and he is looking forward to working with the young striker.

He said: “We are looking to keep him. He is a good player and I like him. He is playing and enjoying it and has scored a couple of goals, although he has got loads of improvement in him.

“I had a good chat with him on Friday and he loves it here and knows straight away that with me coming in the door, I want to keep him and that’s pleasing for him.”

The 43-year-old takes charge of Rovers for the first time at Shrewsbury tonight, with Nathan Tyson also back in the fray after returning to the side from the bench on Saturday.

Tyson could partner Anderson this evening in the first of three successive away outings with trips to Peterborough and Millwall to follow.

Last six games: Shrewsbury WLLLWL, Doncaster DLDWLL.

Referee: K Johnson (Somerset).

Last time: Shrewsbury 1 Doncaster 2; February 26, 2013; League One.
