Reid enjoying injury-free Blackburn preseason

After several injury-plagued seasons, Steven Reid hopes a full preseason at Blackburn Rovers is a promise of better things to come for the midfielder.

He said: "Obviously, I haven't played a full part in the last couple of pre-seasons, in particular last summer when I missed the whole of it, and it's always difficult to catch up after that.

"But this season, fingers crossed, I'll be taking part in every session every day.

"I've had talks with the fitness coaches and a couple of lads behind the scenes, and one of the most important things is to get a full pre-season under your belt because it increases your chances of playing a full season injury free.

"Over the last couple of seasons, I haven't done that and I think that has showed with some of the injuries I've ended up picking up.

"You always end up playing a bit of catch up when you don't get a full pre-season so, hopefully, I can be involved in the full hit and be up to match speed for the first game of the season."
