Reid was happy to make a winning return to the West Ham team at Sunderland on Monday night.
He told whufc.com: "I've had a tough couple of weeks - I was sick for a little while - so it was nice to get out there and play again on Monday.
"Obviously we've come to a place where they needed the points too, but we came away with the win which was really positive.
"They came back with a goal and we had to hold on and defend. At the end of the day we did that well enough and I think we can be pleased to get another important win.
"We've defended like that for most of the season, but in the middle part of the season we had the problem with scoring goals. Now we've changed that and we're still not conceding many and when you're doing both those things you normally pick up points."
