Rotherham United striker, Reuben Reid, already has five goals to his name this season and says he will be happy if he only gets ten more.

Speaking to The Advertiser, twenty-year old Reid said, ‘I told the gaffer, when I first signed, that any striker would be happy with fifteen goals a season. And, as this is my first full season starting games regularly, then I’d be more than happy with fifteen. I’ve got five goals so far and I’ve set a few up as well.

‘I’m playing in an unfamiliar position, on the right, at the moment and I’m still learning. I’m still young but then again, if you’re good enough to be on the pitch then you are old enough.’

In the nil-nil at Dean Court last weekend, the big striker said, ‘Bournemouth were on top in the first half and we were lucky to go in without conceding at half time. In the end we could have nicked it but looking at the match as a whole I think it was a good point.’

Speaking about the penalty against Grimsby, Reid carried on, ‘I won the penalty and I would have liked to have taken it. But Mark Hudson was nominated beforehand so I stepped back. He scored so that’s no problem for me.

‘Generally, I’m happy with my own form, which is only going to get better, and if I can nick a few goals on the way and the team is successful, then I’m happy.’

Let’s hope you nick a couple of goals tomorrow, Reuben!
