Wembley Doubles

BOBBY Reid has already enjoyed a victorious afternoon at Wembley this year – and is determined to play his part in making it a double at the cradle of football.

The Argyle midfielder, who is on loan to the Pilgrims from Bristol City, watched his Robins’ team-mates lift the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy last month after beating Walsall 2-0 at the Home of Legends.


That experience has merely whetted his appetite for the ultimate stage and redoubled his desire to help the Pilgrims progress to the Sky Bet League 2 play-off final.


“It makes me more eager to play at Wembley now,” said Bobby, as he prepared for Saturday’s long old poke to Carlisle, “so we’ll see what happens.


“It’s a big occasion and a big stadium; a lot of people want to play there and don’t get the chance sometimes; we have got a great opportunity to do that.”


If the 22-year-old playmaker can inspire his Home Park colleagues all the way through their last three league matches and both legs of a play-off semi-final, he will be able to fully contemplate the possibility of a promotion double: while Argyle were drawing 1-1 with Mansfield at Home Park on Tuesday, City celebrated promotion to the Championship by winning 6-0 at Bradford City.


“They are there now and I hope they win the league,” said Bobby. “I am proud of the lads down there for achieving that and it is nothing less than they deserve. I hope that we do it as well, through the play-offs. I think we have got a good chance.”
