DEFENDER Jevan Anderson, who only found out about his loan to Hereford a day before his debut, said it was an enjoyable game despite being on the wrong end of the 2-0 scoreline.

The 19-year-old has joined the Bulls on a month-long loan deal from League One side Burton Albion.

He played the full 90 minutes as the Bulls lost 2-0 at Alfreton having dealt with tricky conditions in Derbyshire.

"I enjoyed it to be honest with you, despite the result," he said.

"I was thrown in at the deep end but it was enjoyable to come down and meet the boys. It was a tough game but I did enjoy it.

"I found out about this loan yesterday, Friday morning, so I just came down and met the boys today.

"Then thrown right in at the deep end, it means you don't have much time to think about it. I just went on and did the best that I could."

He added: "It was a bit tough to start with, especially with the wind in the first half.

"Down the slope as well they put it right on top of us as well with two physical strikers, so it was hard to get used to but I felt we dealt with it okay, probably as best as we could.

"Then second half I thought we dealt with them well, held a higher line which allowed us to pin them in."

When asked if he liked to play the ball out of defence, Anderson said: "That's how we like to play at my parent club Burton.

"I've had that drummed into me so I like to get attacks started from the back whenever I can.

"It was hard to do that today in terms of the conditions and how they played but I'd say that's an asset of my game."

Anderson will continue to train with Burton Albion as well as joining in with Hereford's sessions at Hartpury College on a Tuesday and Thursday.
