Billy Jones admits that he will need to be patient before he gets back into the West Bromwich Albion team.

West Bromwich Albion defender Billy Jones has admitted that he will need to be patient before he gets back into the first team.

The right-back is fully fit again after being sidelined for the past six weeks with a hamstring tear.

During Jones's time out of action, veteran Steven Reid has replaced the 27-year-old in defence.

"It will be difficult to get my place back," Jones told the Birmingham Mail.

"Reidy has been solid and consistent - as always. He's a great pro, he's been spot-on. I think that's why we've got such good results recently because, as an XI, we've been consistent and working hard for each other.

"If I'm going to be perfectly honest, I don't expect the gaffer to change a winning team. That's very much a rule of football - if the team is winning, then you don't change it."

West Brom, who are currently five points above the relegation zone, host Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday.
