Reed: An amazing feeling

It was a Man of the Match display for the diminutive midfield man on Saturday against Hull

Birthday weekend, his first home goal, three points for Rovers and a Man of the Match award, it's fair to say it's not a bad time to be Harrison Reed.

The midfielder, who turns 24 today, produced another sparkling display at Ewood Park to help Rovers to three crucial points and haul the team to within touching distance of the play-offs.

Reed, who is currently on loan from Southampton, finished things off with Rovers' third goal against Hull City, with a lovely dink over David Marshall, and admitted afterwards that he was due a strike on home turf.

“It’s an amazing feeling and scoring at home has been on my mind, but with it being my birthday on Sunday, to score in front of all the fans makes it extra special," the birthday boy told iFollow Rovers.

“A few of the lads have got on me and said I was due a goal. I gambled on Adz [Armstrong]’s first goal and then did the same for his shot in the second half.

"Thankfully it came back to me and it was a composed finish.

“It was an important goal to get, particularly after they changed their style a bit in the second half. The third goal calmed the nerves and we controlled things again from there onwards.

“It was probably one of our best performances of the season in every aspect. We were positive on the ball, made runs forward, got the clean sheet and scored three goals."
