Reid fighting to be fit for Thursday

30 April 2013

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson says Kyel Reid is making progressing following his recent groin injury and has a fighting chance of being involved in Thursday's mouth-watering Play-Off Semi-Final First Leg with Burton Albion at the Coral Windows Stadium.

The Bantams' flying winger missed last weekend's trip to Cheltenham Town after tweaking his groin in the league victory over Burton seven days earlier.

Encouragingly, Reid was back on the training ground this Tuesday going through some drills with club physio Matt Barrass, but Parkinson still couldn't confirm whether the speedster will be ready for selection come Thursday.

Parkinson said: "Kyel has been out on the training pitch today. This hasn't been a serious injury for him.

"He has recently had an injection in the tendon in his groin to try and help speed up his recovery.

"If he's fit, he'll be involved on Thursday, if not, we'll just leave him out.

"We have other good players here within the squad. There is no way that we can play someone who isn't 100% fit."
