Reid is predicting Roy Hodgson's men will have another difficult division to manoeuvre their way through.
"It is going to be another tough one," he told the WBA website.
"Last season was a very hard season and went down to the wire.
"No-one really got cut adrift at the bottom of the league like previous years when teams were in the mid-20s points-wise and down in February time.
"We'll be aiming to get to the 40-point mark as quickly as possible and then kick on from there."
