West Bromwich Albion fullback Billy Jones is ready to battle Steven Reid for a place in Steve Clarke's XI next season.

He made 17 starts, just four less than Reid, and showed his versatility by also playing at left-back on occasions.

"Anybody who is looking to establish themselves in this division is looking to get a full season in the team," said Jones to the WBA website.

"It's going to be a difficult decision for the head coach to make in terms of who will play right-back as Reidy and I probably played about an equal amount of games, and I think we both did really well when we were in the team.

"There will be hard decisions for the gaffer all over the pitch because we have good players that competed with each other throughout last season.

"I've always said that it's great to have competition for places all over the pitch and I think last season at this club proved that."
