Ben Reeves put Southend on the road to Wembley in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy last night with a late goal against Leyton Orient, and he hopes he doesn’t have to miss the final.

Reeves’ equaliser to level the game at 2-2 meant Southend progressed with a 3-2 aggregate score but his loan from Southampton is only valid till the end of the month meaning he will miss the final, and Reeves is hoping an agreement can be made for him to walk out at our National Stadium.

Speaking to the Echo Reeves said of his goal and potential Wembley bow.

‘My loan spell from Southampton ends before the final but of course I want to stay and play in it. I’ll be having a word with the manager and it was a massive moment when my goal went in. I’m more used to scoring in reserve games than in front of crowds like this and I didn’t really know what to do when it went in.’

Reeves adds that it wasn’t exactly a quality finish from him but that he was delighted when it went in, as that is all that matters, and the reaction and response from the crowd is something that will stick with him forever.
