We Want Points Over Performance - Reid

Bobby Reid admits it is time City turned good performances into good results.

The 22-year-old has impressed in the attacking midfield role over the past two matches – the 1-0 win at Middlesbrough and a 2-1 home defeat to Burnley.

The Bristolian believes City have played well in all five Sky Bet Championship outings to date, but is frustrated by only taking maximum points once.

“I think we’ve played well throughout all of the games, but we’ve got to get points on the board,” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“We’d rather take the points than be talking about another good performance.”

Speaking after the Burnley defeat, man of the match Reid was left ruing opportunities not taken in the 34 minutes leading up to the Clarets opener.

“We came out well in the first half but we’ve got to take our chances,” he said. “I’ve had a couple and Jimmy (Jonathan Kodjia) has had a couple – if we score them it’s a different game.

“We passed the ball well and we moved well. Finishing those chances would’ve been the icing on the cake, but we’ve got to do better from set plays.

“Knowing that the goals have come from set pieces and that they haven’t passed through us is even worse.”

Reid has filled the void vacated by the suspended Luke Freeman in recent weeks and hopes to keep his place in the team when Freeman returns for City’s next game at Birmingham City in ten days’ time.

“I’m enjoying it,” he added. “I just want to play for the club and for the fans and help the team get three points.

“I’m trying to affect the game and hopefully I can bring something to the team.”
