Annerson made some crucial saves in the win at Burton on Wednesday night after his appearance in round one against Lincoln City.

annersonbig1"It was good to get out there because I've been champing at the bit since pre-season," Jamie told the Advertiser.

"Andy and I have got a good relationship and that bodes well for the whole team with competition for places. Players are pushing for starting positions and hopefully I'm putting a bit of pressure on Andy!

"Last year I didn't get a sniff and this year he seems to be man of the match every game. It is frustrating for me sitting on the bench but I am pleased for Andy because he's playing so well and I'm sure he'd be pleased for me after Burton." he added.

"I'm delighted we're through to the next round and I hope the gaffer keeps on picking me for the competition. It'd be great to get all the way to Wembley but there are a few more games yet.

"Against Lincoln in the previous round I didn't have much to do but I had to make a few saves against Burton and I was disappointed not to keep a clean sheet with that goal late in the game."

Meanwhile gaffer Ronnie Moore praised the 21 year old; "He was fantastic with a few good saves and Andy Warrington is under pressure, there's no doubt about that, I was pleased for Jamie because he's worked hard in training.

"Andy is one of the best keepers in this division but if anything does happen to him then we have got Jamie to drop in without having to go out looking for anyone else. That's probably the biggest compliment I can pay the lad. He's just got to sit tight and the opportunities will come." he added.
