Bobby Back on the Beat
BOBBY Reid’s message on his return to Home Park was simple: “It’s good to be back.”The midfielder is a Pilgrim until the end of the season, having joined on loan from Bristol City once again, and believes he can finally get his head down and help Argyle push up the table.
Bobby first linked up with John Sheridan’s side in late September last year and proved a key figure in helping Argyle pick up an impressive run of form.
With the month of February creeping up and with the business end of the season starting to take full swing, Bobby is determined to help Argyle rise up the table once more, after a recent blip.
“It’s good to be back,” said Bobby. “It will be good to get some games and hopefully we can push up the table.
“Our aim to get as high as we can. We started well whilst I was here, and I just want to carry on that run we had and to see where it takes us.
“There are twenty games left and we’ll try to win as many as possible.”
Although he has not been away long, Bobby does have a couple of new faces to get to know. Ryan Brunt and Olly Lee have joined the ranks this month, and Bobby has already noted how well they have both settled into the dressing room.
“They’ve settled in fine,” said Bobby.
“In the dressing room everyone knows each other, and there are a few connections from other clubs already, so it’s been good.
“I think we’re a young squad and I think we can do well.
“The lads are pleased to see me, and likewise from my point of view. I think there’s a few injuries at the moments, and we’re trying to get our head down and work hard.”
Bristol City boss Steve Cotterill allowed Bobby to link back up with Argyle for the rest of the season as he wants his player to continue his development - and the midfielder was more than happy to oblige.
“I just want to get games, so I asked him what I could work on, so I can improve my career and myself,” said Bobby.
“So we spoke about that and for me to get the best out of myself so I can enjoy my time here.
“I was here before so it makes sense to come back to the place I knew.
“This was a no brainer for me.”
