Having not long joined us, Kenny Anderson made his club debut as a second half substitute in our three two victory over Livingston and even grabbed himself a debut goal.

Can’t ask for much more can you really.

Having had an immediate impact in the game as he arrived on the pitch, he went on to nod home fellow substitute Billy King’s cross to give us the lead with only seven minutes remaining in the game, and that gave us the lift to get the third goal which proved all important with their late penalty award as we took another three points.

Speaking to the Official Site about his first experience of action since joining us, the Dutchman explained.

‘I really enjoyed it. I was happy, not just to make my debut, but to make an impact as well. When you make a move to a club, you dream of making a difference. I wanted to be an important player for this team, so to get a goal when I did and win the three points makes it extra special.’

With some family members in attendance, the crowd gave him a good reception as he took to the pitch, but nobody expected the kind of reception he got when he put the ball in the net – players don’t always settle that quickly.

With the reception though that made it an even happier moment for him as he explained that it gave him an instant lift and made him want to give the travelling fans something to cheer about, so he was just pleased he was able to even if the goal did come later in the game than he’d have hoped.

Jamie Walker was also on the interview run following the game, and for him he thought the victory – with both substitutes playing such a key role in the win – showed the kind of quality in depth we now have within the team.

‘We could sense the fans were getting a bit anxious, but when we got the goal it was a weight off our shoulders, we managed to blank it out. Billy and Kenny made a great impact, so it shows the depth we have in our squad.’

With bookies and the Nicholson incident, Walker added that we knew they would make it a physical battle, so for the players they felt they stood up to that well, but when it matters we allowed our quality to shine through to get the victory and all three points.

But like Robbie Neilson, he admitted the full time whistle did bring a sense of relief.
