Shorey To Be On Right Side Of A Roy Rescue

Nicky Shorey has suffered relegation before, when a Roy ran Fulham put Reading third from bottom on goal difference due to their late season run. This time round he's determined to be on the right side of a Hodgson fightback.

Speaking to wba.co.uk, the left back said he had complete confidence in Hodgson's ability to pull off a rescue act again, and knowing how much relegation hurts, he's determined to use that experience to help drive the Baggies on in their quest for results.

'I've obviously been in this situation before, our new gaffer saved Fulham on goal difference. Going down is never nice and we definitely don't want it to happen here.'

Whilst Shorey says he never likes to see managers lose their job, he appreciates it's part of the game and in some ways a new manager coming in can help revitalise out of favour players and give them a new lease of life at the club and it's certainly helped him.

'You know it's a new chance to show the new gaffer I should be in the team, I'm a good player and I'm worth having around. It's just a renewed energy, especially if you haven't been playing regularly like me. I'm getting sharper and I feel ready to crack on now.'

The 30 year is looking forward to the Stoke clash and he said he knows it's going to be a difficult game, he just hopes Roy selects him despite his diminutive stature because he believes he has the experience, if not the physical build, to be an asset.

'It will be tough against Stoke, size does come into it and I suppose the gaffer will have to put a team together to win this game. But you can handle it no matter what size you are, if you play your own game.'

As for the history books, Shorey's message is simple.

'Stats are there to be broken.'
