ADAM REED is expected to be fit for York City’s vital League Two clash at Dagenham & Redbridge this weekend.
The 21-year-old on-loan Sunderland midfielder limped out of the action early in the second half of Saturday’s 2-1 home win over Southend but is now well along the road to recovery.
Reed is yet to finish on the losing side for the Minstermen in five appearances and scored his second goal for the Bootham Crescent club against Southend.
His availability, therefore, will be a big boost for Nigel Worthington’s men, who need a point from the game to ensure League Two survival, while hosts Dagenham require a win to make themselves safe.
On Reed’s condition, Worthington said: “He’s okay. It was just a bang to his hip.
“There were no pulls or strains and it’s settling down quickly, so I’m sure he will be fine. He’s been assessed both here and at Sunderland and will be back with us for training tomorrow.”
City sold the last of their 1,204-ticket allocation for Saturday’s East London encounter yesterday, which also delighted the former Northern Ireland chief.
“That is phenomenal and a great effort,” Worthington added.
“We now need to reward that support with our performance and the right result.”
