Adam Reed earns praise from York City chief Nigel Worthington

York Press: Adam Reed Adam Reed

ADAM Reed is getting back to his best, according to York City manager Nigel Worthington.

The 22-year-old midfielder is hoping to retain his starting place for the Minstermen’s home match with Cheltenham tomorrow despite Lewis Montrose being back in contention after serving a two-match suspension.

Reed has kicked off both of those games – a 2-0 Bootham Crescent defeat to Chesterfield being followed by last weekend’s 2-1 triumph at Fleetwood – with Worthington believing he is approaching the kind of form that saw him play an integral role in preserving City’s Football League status at the end of last season.

His first spell at the club – on loan from Sunderland – came to an end in the summer when Reed opted to join Burton instead of the Minstermen after being released by the Black Cats.

A tough spell at the Pirelli Stadium, where his game time was severely limited, ensued.

He then had to bide his time for a second full debut at City, being named as a substitute for the first three matches following his January transfer window switch, but Worthington feels he has staked a claim to continue his midfield partnership with ex-Robin Russell Penn tomorrow.

The City boss said: “I thought we saw the Adam Reed we had at the end of last season at Fleetwood.

“He was putting a foot in, getting close to people and getting on the ball so I was very, very pleased with his performance.

“With Lewis coming back, I will look at the situation and how Cheltenham set up before deciding which way to go.”

Edsoni says...

I'll chance a comment.
Montrose reads the game and usually makes himself available for a simple pass inside when our wide men are being closed down. However his pass from that position tends to be to the opposite wing. (Not always a bad thing)
When we're at home I would prefer to have the option of taking the man on, or a pass and go beyond the more advanced central player. Reed is probably better if we're looking to go through the middle and utilise weighted passes to players on the shoulders of the centre backs.
So tomorrow I would tend to favour Reed even though he hasn't yet approached the levels of last year. Penn would then be more withdrawn.
NW will know much more about our opposition however and may need to reinforce to combat a ball carrier from midfield >>that would point more to Montrose. .
On a positive note the loanee that required Penn to be released is not playing for our opposition so I hope that we are progressive in our approach tomorrow.
Our attitude to the game will be crucial, 3 points is most important but a lack of hoofball and some vibrant attacking intent wouldn't go amiss.

There you have it, Why do we need NW and his backroom staff,Edsoni has cracked it at last, what I would like to ask when Reed is looking to go through the middle who are the players on his shoulder.?

Football is an easy game to play made so complicated at times. I fully agree with Edsoni's last paragraph, no hoof ball and lets not worry about the opposition. Once the players cross the chalk line they need freedom to express themselves, and when we lose the ball track back and get between it and our goal.
Injuries permitting we have three subs that can come on an pick up the mantle from tyring legs in midfield.

christ bill edsoni put forward a comment which expressed his opinion as how he sees the two players and how each player in his eyes play the game and the style of play both bring to the table, that is what this forum is for it's all about opinion, i thought it was a good comment and genuine of how edsoni sees both players (i personally not a big fan of montrose ) i gave it a thumbs up, if you didn't agree with edsoni just give a thumbs down no need for a cynical reply bill this is the reason why you wind so many posters up, or are you doing it to seek attention ?

Bill on Wed you posted a comment about how you saw defending should be played. Sixtyfourfive replied to which you said if you don't like my opinion move on, don't be cynical, don't reply. That was a fair comment. So then, how is your reply to Edsoni and his opinion on how the game should pan out any different from SFF to you which ruffled your feathers so much. Respect other peoples views, don't be hypocritical and only post football related comments and not personal ones.

Absolutely agree Bill, far too serious by half ....
