The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Paul El­li­son

DEREK Adams has ev­ery faith that Reuben Reid can step up and lead the line for Ply­mouth Ar­gyle.

Striker Reid, 27, be­gan his ca­reer at Ply­mouth and re­turned to Home Park per­ma­nently in 2014, fol­low­ing a pair of loan spells from Yeovil Town.

He net­ted 20 times in each of the last two sea­sons but be­gan the week­end with­out a goal in his last ten games.

How­ever, af­ter 22-year-old Ryan Brunt suf­fered what is feared to be a torn an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment on Tues­day, man­ager Adams has placed his faith in Reid.

“Reuben can un­doubt­edly score goals,” he said.“He can lead the line, he can take the ball in and he’s strong.

“He has got a very good idea of the game and you don’t score 20 goals two sea­sons in a row if you are a poor player.”

GOALS: Reuben Reid
