West Bromwich Albion fullback Steven Reid is full of praise for young teammate Billy Jones.

Reid missed Sunday's goalless draw with West Ham United due to injury, while 25-year-old Jones earned praise from Albion boss Steve Clarke for his display against the Hammers.

He told the WBA website: "Billy's been first class this season when he's played, especially during the four-game winning run we had, he was on top form.

"We get on well, he's come from the lower leagues like me and we have a great relationship.

"I've been fully impressed with how he's done - last season when he got his chance - and kicking on again this season.

"He's been in great form."
