Reid: Wants top flight win as soon as possible
West Brom's Steven Reid is eyeing a Premier League win as soon as possible to help keep the Baggies up.
Roy Hodgson's side have been on a great run of form since the former Liverpool boss took over, although they slipped to their first defeat under their new manager in the 3-1 reverse to Chelsea last time.
That defeat and other results last weekend mean the 11th-placed Baggies now sit six points above the drop zone - on 39 points - with five games to play.
Next up is a trip to Tottenham on Saturday, while their run-in also features away games at local rivals Wolves and Newcastle, as well as home clashes with Aston Villa and Everton.
Reid believes they need to get just one more win to stay up - and he wants it to come sooner than later.
"We know it's not job done yet. We still need an extra few points."
Steven Reid Quotes of the week
The utility man, who can play both in midfield and defence, said: "We know it's not job done yet. We still need an extra few points.
"We don't really know what the target is, but I think one more win, 42 points or around that, should be enough.
"It's easy to say a number, but you just never know because it's easy to go on a bad run.
"Just look at Sunderland who are on a difficult run at the moment, so the sooner we can pick up three more points the better.
"I'm still confident we will be fine."
Despite the defeat to Chelsea, Reid is tipping the Baggies to go on another run of form.

He added: "We're still a decent side and we will go again at the weekend.
"Saturday was an off day, but we've still been on a great run and hopefully we can go on another before the end of the season."
On a personal level, Reid is enjoying getting an extended run in the side under Hodgson.
The former Blackburn player started 10 matches at the end of last season after joining the Baggies on loan before then being signed permanently by former boss Roberto Di Matteo last summer.
But he then failed to command a regular starting berth earlier this season before Hodgson restored him to the starting line-up for the last six matches at right-back.
Reid added: "When I signed I was pretty confident I would be in the first XI from the word go.
"I'm disappointed I've not started more games this season given the runs we've been on at times.
"But since the manager has come in I've had a decent run of games and I am getting up to match tempo now."
