Reid injury update


Manchester-United-transfer-Winston-Reid-402165Winston Reid has suffered a dead leg and is fully expected to be back for the Hammers against Aston Villa next weekend.

Co-chairman David Gold – speaking to ClaretandHugh on his way home from Stoke this evening – revealed: “He suffered a dead leg and came off knowing  that James Tomkins was available on the bench. 

“It’s normally not a serious thing and as a fit young man we would expect him to shake the problem off relatively quickly and be available for next weekend.”

Gold was delighted with the team’s fightback from two down to take a point declaring: “We were second best in the first half and looked unbalanced with just the one striker.

“But the manager changed things immediately at half time rather than waiting 15 minutes or so and we showed real grit to claw our way back.

“Stewart Downing was my man of the match but James Collins was immense. I’m sure if a double decker bus had come through the middle he’d have headed it away.”
