Let's continue good run at Craven Cottage - Reid

City's top scorer Bobby Reid could enter double figures in the trip to Fulham on Tuesday night.

And the forward believes City's good form at in West London, along with more than 1,600 away fans, can spur the side on to another victory.

Reid was on the scoresheet the last time the teams met in London. City thumped Fulham 4-0 to record their third consecutive win at Craven Cottage.

City head into another away tie after winning their hard-fought battle against Sunderland by two goals to one at the Stadium of Light.

As for Fulham, they salvaged a point against Bolton Wanderers in their last match thanks to a last-gasp Tom Cairney header. 

Reid, who is the Sky Bet Championship's joint-top scorer, told BCTV: "We know the Championship is a bit crazy like that.

"You're going to get teams that want to play football and sides that are going to be physical, so we knew what kind of game to expect.

"We knew we had to be busy and quick and that we could cause them problems. It was a different game for us and we coped with it well.

"When we brought on Milan (Djuric) it changed the game again for us again and we could secure the ball up top and move up the pitch quicker."

WHAT HE SAID

"We've done well when we've played there and hopefully we can continue that good run."

Bobby Reid

Reid could score his tenth goal in all competitions on Tuesday night, after heading in his ninth of the season in the Sunderland victory.

He added: "Not necessarily. I'm usually on the keeper but Tayls (Matty Taylor) was on the keeper, so I was in the pack attacking the ball. I was at the back stick and the ball was near me so I thought I would just go for it.

"It's been different for me [moving from midfield to striker] but now I feel like it is natural. I really enjoy it now and I just want to kick on.

"Craven Cottage is a nice stadium, it's a nice place to play. It's not intimidating and the lads will go there wanting three points. We've done well when we've played there and hopefully we can continue that good run."

On the travelling fans, he added: "They make a massive difference. Sunderland was different because they were up in the skies but against Fulham they will be right behind and we will hear them and it does spur us on to do well."
