Harry Anderson has two months to prove he deserves another Peterborough United contract.

The 20 year-old’s current Posh deal expires at the end of this season. He hasn’t actually made a Posh appearance since a 1-1 draw at Port Vale in October, 2015 when he appeared as a second-half substitute.

But a successful four-month loan spell at National League leaders Lincoln City at the start of the current season has instilled confidence in young Anderson.

He’s not even become downcast at a knee ligament injury which surfaced as soon as he returned from Sincil Bank in December.

Anderson is fit now. He was an unused substitute at Bradford City last weekend and he’s determined to state a case for a new contract.

“I definitely came back from Lincoln a better player,” Anderson stated. “It was a blow to get an injury as soon as I returned, but I’m fit now and determined to win another contract.

“Mine runs out at the end of this season, but I want to stay. I will get my head down to stay in the squad and hopefully I will get an opportunity on the pitch.

“It was a great experience at Lincoln. Playing week in, week out was good for me. I learnt a lot there.

“The manager has spoken about me playing right-back for Peterborough. I’m sure I could do that, but I prefer to play as a winger or a wing-back.

“Getting in to the matchday squad was big for me. It was a long time coming. Now I’m focused on getting into the side.”
