West Brom boss Clarke: Jones has taken game to new level

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke feels Billy Jones has taken his game to a new level this season.

The former Crewe and Preston defender has been part of an ever-present back-four that has conceded just six goals in eight Barclays Premier League games.

"Since I came here last year Billy has been improving all the time," Clarke told the WBA website.

"He put in a lot of good performances last year and there was a good competition between him and Steven [Reid] for the right-back spot.

"This year Billy has just managed to get himself ahead of Steven with good performances.

"He is solid defensively and still gives us creativity going forward on occasions."
