York City striker Jamie Reed is determined to throw off the label of being regarded as nothing more than an “impact player.”

The 25-year-old scored twice after appearing as a substitute during the unlucky 4-3 FA Cup first round replay defeat at AFC Wimbledon on Monday evening. He was also on target after coming off the bench in the original game.
Reed has always shown himself very capable of scoring goals on a regular basis for the Minstermen since making his debut for the club in an FA Cup third round tie at Bolton Wanderers in January 2011. However, the former Bangor City marksman has constantly found his opportunities limited.
“I’ve just got to keep plugging away and, when I get my chance, prove what I can do,” Reed told The Press. “I would definitely love a chance to start, which is the same as any other player in the squad.
“All I can do is try my hardest and, while it just happens to be that I come on and do the business,” he added. “I would like to get away from that impact-player tag and do the best I can.”
