Reid My Lips: "More Goals To Come"
ARGYLE’S leading scorer Reuben Reid believes there is still more to come from him and hopes that his goals and performances will guide Argyle towards a play-off spot over their last six matches.Having become the first Pilgrims’ player to reach 20 league goals in a season for 20 years when he scored against Exeter, the on-loan Yeovil striker still believes that he could have done better this season and is confident that this team can still sneak into the Sky Bet League 2 top seven.
The Pilgrims travel to Newport County on Tuesday after slipping to ninth in the table following a draw and two defeats in their last three matches and Reuben said: “Obviously, it’s got to the stage now when you are keeping a look out [at the table]; I know the position and potentially how far we can go towards the end of the season.
“Ideally, we’d like to win all of the games. Regarding the last three results, we've made it so that if we want to make the play-offs, we need to win five more games.”
After finding the net 16 times in Sky Bet League matches this season, Reuben is now just two goals shy of his best ever league return when he scored 18 playing for Rotherham United in the same division, back in 2008-09.
However, the 25 year-old Bristol born striker believes that he can still play better. “It’s been a so-so season really,” he said. “It could have been better. It’s gone ok, but there is always room for improvement.
“Scoring is nice and helps the team win, but I much prefer the games when I’ve not even scored but played well and the team has won.”
The work-ethic that Reuben puts in to most of his performances, along with the scoring return he has produced, has lead to many Argyle fans lauding his impact on the Greens pilgrimage up the table.
Despite the plaudits coming his way, Reuben is still looking to add yet more goals to his game and believes the play-offs remain within sight.
He said: “My personal aim is to get four more goals to get to 20 in the league and hopefully the goals can help us into a promotion spot.”
