'Andy has me in Notts'

SIMON COX has become a big fan of Andy Reid since his move to Nottingham Forest earlier this season.

Cox is still settling in to his new club but he's already aware of the position that Reid, now in his second spell with his first senior club, has at Forest.

"Andy has been first class. On my first day at the club he was straight over to me to say hello and introduced me to everyone," says Cox.

"He's a great lad, he's one of the funniest blokes I ever met, but he's also a great player.

"He has such a good spirit about him that it's a pleasure to go into work every day but Andy backs that up with his talent, he really is a great player to have on your side."
