At last: Big boost for Bilic

Winston-Reid-714445Slaven Bilic has received a big boost today with the return of Winston Reid to the first team squad.

The manager revealed: “Winston Reid is back. He’s been training with the rehab and fitness coaches for a week now and they have done good work on his fitness, so he is back and trained with us on Tuesday.

“We know from before that he doesn’t need many games to get his form good, so it’s big for us of course because he’s one of our major players, one of the senators, as I call them. It’s a big boost for us for the remainder of the season.

“He is one of our best players of the season, so we are expecting him to make our defence more solid.”
