Reidy Back In The Groove
Blackburn midfielder Steven Reid is hoping to have an extended run in the Rovers first team now he is back in the groove after solid outings over the Christmas and New Year period.
The Republic of Ireland international returned after 14 months out with knee and back injuries this season but suffered a calf strain in December.
Reid came through the 90 minutes at the Reebok Stadium unscathed and with Aaron Mokoena now at the African Nations Cup, Tugay injured and Robbie Savage sold, he is keen to play more.
The 26-year-old told the club's official website: 'I was delighted to be back out there.
'Hopefully I can train consistently and get a few weeks of decent training and just kick on and get fitter and more match fit as the games go on.'
I think we agree that isnt quite 100% just yet but he is a big asset to the team and a cracking player. With more midfield players likely to arrive at the club during the transfer window Reid is confident that this will raise his game even more.
