The one proven player of League One quality that we signed last summer, Kyel Reid has thus far been a disappointing signing by those standards. A frustrating winger who tends to run down blind alleys, Reid has occasionally demonstrated the quality that made him such an awkward customer on the occasions he came up against us. However, part of the problems he’s faced during his time at Coventry City has been that managers haven’t utilised him correctly as an out-and-out winger.
Towards the end of last season under Mark Robins, Reid showed that he can be a highly effective player when used properly. His assist for George Thomas in the Checkatrade Trophy final showed his ability to cause problems down the left wing and provide quality with his final ball. Reid should be a force to be reckoned with in League Two, although there is possibly a question mark over whether we can afford to have an inconsistent player form a key part of our attacking threat.
