Reid In Team Of The Week (29/8/17)

Reid In Team Of The Week (29/8/17)

Colchester United are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.

The performance by Kyel Reid in the five one victory over Forest Green Rovers at the weekend at the Colchester Community Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.

I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Reid was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.

'Colchester registered a first win of the new season in some style, marching to an emphatic 5-1 win over Forest Green Rovers. Reid didn`t need long to leave his mark on the game, grabbing a goal in the fourth minute and setting up another just over quarter of an hour later.'

It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Reid for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the win.

Full Team:

Joe Fryer (Stevenage), Charlie Mulgrew (Blackburn Rovers), Shaun Hutchinson (Millwall), Sid Nelson (Yeovil Town), Kyel Reid (Colchester United), Kamil Grosicki (Hull City), Alex Woodyard (Lincoln City), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds United), Gwion Edwards (Peterborough United), Frank Nouble (Newport County), Tom Eaves (Gillingham).

Manager - Harry Kewell (Crawley Town).
