REEVES PLEASED TO PLAY HIS PART

9 October 2017

Jake Reeves was pleased to see City's game-plan pay off at Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday, as the Bantams midfielder played his part in the impressive away victory.

The all-action competitor was arguably one of City's stand-out performers in the 4-1 success in Sky Bet League One at the weekend.

Reeves' desire to win the ball just five minutes in led to the early dismissal of MK Dons midfielder Aaron Tshibola.

The central midfield man also had a hand in City's third and fourth goals in the second period at Stadium MK.

Reeves said: "Even when they got a man sent off, the game-plan never really changed.

"We wanted to press high and play good attacking football through the middle of the pitch.

"The red card obviously changed the overall flow of the game, but we still started the match exactly how we wanted to.

"We were still on the front foot and passing the ball around.

"When you are high up (the pitch), you can anticipate a little bit when they are going to pass into one of their midfielders.

"As soon as the pass was made, you can latch onto it. Thankfully, my one-on-one defending was good enough and I've managed to win the ball (leading up to the red card incident).

"(For the fourth goal) To be honest, those sort of balls look good but they are quite simple when you have a team pressing high.

"Tayls' (Paul Taylor) run was great, he made my mind up for me when he made the run and shouted for the ball."
