I knew I was going to score - Reed

18 February 2011 12:20
Midweek match-winner Jamie Reed said he knew he was going to score the moment his winning strike left his foot against Fleetwood Town. The 23-year-old netted his second goal for the club since arriving from Bangor City last month to earn the Minstermen a priceless 1-0 victory against their play-off rivals at Bootham Crescent. Reed had only been introduced from the substitutes bench three minutes earlier as manager Gary Mills (right) made a double-change at half-time on the back of a poor opening forty-five minutes.“It went over Ash’s [Ashley Chambers] head. I gave it a big shout and made sure that I got a good contact on it," Reed told The Press. "I just tried to concentrate on getting a good strike and hitting the target. It turned out to be quite spectacular.“To be honest, I will have to see it on TV first. It felt good. As soon as it left my foot I knew it was going in and it is definitely up there.” York boss Mills was forced  to again change from his preferred 4-3-3 formation and brought on Reed into a central role alongside Michael Rankine and later Leon Constantine.“It was 4-4-2 and I was up through the middle and did well," Reed continued. "As long as I am doing that and the team do well, I don’t really mind where I play.“There is a lot of competition for places and they are all good players. It is whoever is going to do the business on the day. That’s the manager’s job. He has to pick the players and it’s about getting the result. That’s the main thing.”
