Reid just happy to be back

6:09 am on 4 February 2014

The All Whites captain Winston Reid is staying low-key about his return to West Ham in the English Premier League.

Reid made his return to the London club at the weekend after a 3-month layoff with an ankle injury.

Reid helped his side to six clean sheets in their first 10 league matches, but since then they've dropped to 18th on the table.

The New Zealander made his return against Swansea, coming on with 11 minutes remaining to keep the opposition scoreless despite being a man down.

Reid says the ankle's coming along, admitting he's not a hundred percent yet.

He says he only just started training a couple of days ago... he's just trying to work hard and get back to full fitness as quickly as possible.

West Ham are at Aston Villa this weekend.
