Man of the Match Result

Sunday 5 July 2020 10:30

Harrison Reed’s vital contributions in helping Fulham see off Birmingham City have won him another Man of the Match award.

A major influence throughout the game, but his most obvious impact could be seen in the 95th minute when his clever forward run was spotted by Bobby De Cordova-Reid. He then cut the ball back to the incoming Josh Onomah, who was able to sweep home expertly for a dramatic winner.

In addition to his assist, Reed was a dominating figure in the middle of the park, complimenting the style of his teammate Tom Cairney, who also caused Blues all manner of problems in the second half.

Reed had an impressive 95 touches of the ball, although Fulham’s control of proceedings meant this was still only the fourth most, with Cairney (107), Tim Ream (147), and Michael Hector (118) all seeing more of the play.

Furthermore, Reed made four tackles, delivered five crosses, played two key passes, claimed an interception, and had a pass success rate of 87 per cent.

Half of the fans who voted thought Reed deserved his second MOTM accolade since the restart. Match winner Onomah came in second with 26.7 per cent of the votes, and Cairney made it a clean sweep of midfielders by coming in third on 11.3.
