Reid “buzzing” with goal milestone

Bobby Reid has expressed his delight after netting his 15th goal of the season in front of the Sky Sports cameras at Leeds United.

Lee Johnson’s side reduced the buoyant home supporters into early silence when Famara Diédhiou and Reid - the club’s leading goalscorer - both scored inside the opening 16 minutes of the four-goal thriller.

Reid’s close range finish saw him become just the third player in the division to reach the 15 goal mark in all competitions– alongside Matej Vydra (Derby County) and Leon Clarke (Sheffield United) - an achievement the Academy product is proud of.

Reid told BCTV: “I am buzzing with the 15 goals. I remember the ball was in the air for a while and Packs smashed it across the box and I thought if I was on my toes I would get a tap in.

“Famara also got his tenth goal today and it’s a good partnership. We are working hard for each other, working hard for the team and hopefully it will only improve.

“It’s good for me to have someone next to me, a real presence who can take the load off me and I can float around and be busy like I want to be.”

CITY STUNNED BY LEEDS COMEBACK

Despite the electric start, City were denied maximum points for a second successive week, courtesy of a dramatic second half comeback, as Pierre-Michel Lasogga and Kemar Roofe both found the target to ensure the points were shared in West Yorkshire.

“We are disappointed with the result as we went two goals up and looked comfortable,” he continued.

“Had we been able to get a third in the second half we would have put the game to bed, but we were unable to extend our lead and you know what it’s like here, the crowd get on their back and they really pushed for it and they got their goals.

“Before the game we would have taken a point but we really wanted to win, particularly when we were 2-0 up. I think we did enough in the first half to warrant a win, but we couldn’t hold on and we have to go again.”

REACTION ON BCTV

City return to Sky Bet Championship action on Wednesday evening when Fulham visit Ashton Gate (7.45pm kick-off) and a victory would see the BS3 outfit leapfrog their opponents, who sit in fifth.
