BOBBY Reid’s return to Home Park saw the talented Bristol City loanee produce another eye-catching display in a green shirt, to the delight of his temporary manager.The 21-year-old began his second stint for the Pilgrims this season against the Minstermen, and could hardly have started in better fashion: in the third minute, he popped up on the right flank to deliver a cross, and saw his shot loop off the leg of an advancing York defender and sail into the far corner of custodian Alex Cisak’s goal.
Bobby bossed the midfield for large periods of the Sky Bet League 2 game, which ended 1-1 after Jake Hyde’s last-gasp leveler, displaying great vision to orchestrate the play and put through his attack-minded team-mates on a number of occasions – something that especially caught the eye of his manager.
“I thought he was quality,” said John Sheridan, who urged Bobby to “pick up where he left off” during the week’s build-up to the game. “You can just see that he has just got this little bit of calmness and cockiness.
“He sees things and he looks somewhere, then passes somewhere else. I like that in a player.”
“Some of the performances…if we had won the game, I would be glowing about them.
“I thought [Kelvin] Mellor was unbelievable; [Andy] Kellett was outstanding; Bobby Reid was outstanding, and I thought that as a team, we did everything right.”
