Reeves Fit & Raring To Go

Reeves Fit & Raring To Go

Midfielder Ben Reeves has declared himself fit and ready to go with his start to life at Charlton Athletic hampered with a niggling injury.

Having come off the bench in the three one victory over Fleetwood Town next Saturday, Reeves will be hard at work on the training pitch with the postponement of the Peterborough United tie this weekend, but it gives him time to build his fitness further.

Speaking to the Official Site this week, Reeves explained.

'I wanted to come in and hit the ground running but it wasn`t to be and now it`s nice to be back with the lads and, most importantly, it was good that we got the three points on Saturday. I`m just as determined as the day I arrived here. There are a good group of lads here, some good players and I`m looking forward to playing with them. We have got a little bit of a break now and then hopefully we can build on Saturday`s win in our next league game. The boys have had a good start to the season and now hopefully I can come in and help them to continue that in the upcoming games and for the rest of the season.'

Having been forced to watch from afar as he was sidelined, Reeves believed that Charlton's bright start to the year still had plenty of room for improvement.

'We`ve had a couple of games that we think we should have got more out of but that happens with the way this league is sometimes. The main thing is learning how to deal with games like that, which I think we are, and I think we are only going to get better as the season goes on.'

He added.

'The winning mentality is key. Getting used to winning games in quick succession; Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday and getting those seven or nine points out of nine. We want to be turning up to games like we did on Saturday - turning up, putting a performance in, getting the win and then everyone going home happy. The crowd can help us, lift us - like they did at the weekend - and get us through games as well.'

Reeves got 30 minutes under his belt in Tuesday's behind closed doors friendly against Swindon Town. Mark Marshall also got minutes and scored twice in the three nil win.
