Steven Reid has said he has set his sights on finishing his football career a the Baggies and in such, he’s approaching every game as his last to ensure he does his best.

Speaking to wba.co.uk Reid explained that following his spate of injuries he needs to make sure he makes the most of the games he’s selected for now because no player truly knows when the boots might need to be hung up and he doesn’t want to look back with regret that he didn’t give his very best in the time he now has left to play.

‘I’m just playing it season by season, with the injuries I’m just grateful every time I pull on the shirt and get out on the pitch – you don’t know when it’s going to be your last so you’ve got to play each game like it could be.’

Reid started this season mostly from the bench, but Roy Hodgson has given him a new lease of life lately by starting him at right back and Reid is absolutely delighted with the faith the new gaffer has shown in him, and he’s determined to not let anybody down as we edge closer to the end of the season.

‘I’m really enjoying it, I’ve been out of the team a little bit this season and you just have to keep your head down and keep working. It’s up to the club but I see this as my last club in football if all goes well.’

And if all goes well, he also sees no reason why the Baggies should be looking down given our recent form as a run of a few victories could push us into the upper reaches of the league.

‘There is no reason why we can’t look at a mid-table finish. If you win a couple you’re in the top ten. We have higher level players, and there’s no reason why we can’t kick on.’

That’s the fighting talk we like to hear!
