Reid Relishing Starting Role

Bobby Reid understands the importance of his role in Bristol City’s midfield three.

The 22-year-old has started the last two matches since Steve Cotterill’s departure, in a new-look formation.

Interim manager John Pemberton has opted to go with one lead striker and Reid knows he and his team-mates must support the solitary frontman.

“You can’t leave them isolated,” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“It’s difficult for the striker to be up there on his own, but I like to get forward, use my energy and play one-twos so it’s up to me, the other midfielders and the wingers to get up and help him.”

City take on Leeds United in the Sky Bet Championship tomorrow (3pm kick-off) looking for their first win at Elland Road since 1979.

Reid is relishing his first match at the home of the former First Division champions, if selected, and feels City are capable of taking all three points back to BS3.

He said: “It’ll be good if we can frustrate them, and with our play we know we can score goals and hurts teams.

“We’re going for the win and we’re going there to take three points from them."
