Reid "thankful" to his coaches

If anyone is an example of what can come as a result of hard work, it is Bobby Reid.

The City striker has not only been named in the season's Championship best XI but he has picked up the EFL and PFA Team of the Year awards.

The accolades come with the striker having netted 20 times this season - 18 in the Sky Bet Championship - in his first season as a converted forward.

Reid is closing in on 20 goals in the league alone, which remains his new target with three games of the regular season remaining, starting with Hull City's trip to Ashton Gate this Saturday.

Reid told BCTV "I’m delighted with it [how my season has been]. To be named in the EFL award which is picked by the managers and then be picked by your peers is great as well. I have put in a lot of hard work and I am getting recognition for doing that."

He added: "I just hope to keep scoring goals.

"I am very thankful to the coaches. A lot of work has gone in, a lot of videos have been watched and a lot of details have gone into what I have been doing. It’s nice to see that come out on the pitch.

"My target is now 20 league goals, it’s what all strikers want and it is doable! Maybe I can get more than that but I will start getting towards it on Saturday."
