We got what we came here for - Reid
Boro striker hopes his goal will be catalyst for more to come
CRAIG Reid says he hopes that his goal against AFC Bournemouth will be the start of many strikes this season.
The Boro front man struck just before the break after he was threaded through on goal by Lawrie Wilson, and although the Bournemouth players complained to the officials that they believed Reid had been offside the home side’s manager, Lee Bradbury, later admitted that the striker had in fact been onside when played through.
Reid said afterwards that the move was something he and Wilson had been working on in training.
“I was just happy to be in the right place at the right time to put it away,” Reid said, “and I just hope now that this is the start of more to come.
“Lawrie did very well for me, and it’s something we work on in training a lot, and it was good to see it come off tonight.
“It’s what we set out to do (the win) - come here, get three points and move up the league.
