Steven Reid hopes his versatility can help him to establish himself in West Brom's first team this season.
The former Republic of Ireland utility man was a regular at right-back in the latter stages of the Baggies' promotion campaign but made a 17-minute cameo as a substitute in central midfield as his side drew with Tottenham on Saturday.
"I'm experienced enough to know that when I get my chance then I need the right attitude, even if that means getting five or 10 minutes," the 29-year-old told the club`s official website.
"I can play at right-back, I like sitting in the middle and being involved - I even played at centre-back last week for the reserves."
And he feels he can add to an increased physicality which can stand Albion in good stead, adding: "There is a physical presence, pace - Peter (Odemwingie) is a strong lad, (Marc-Antoine Fortune) has come back, I've arrived, (Paul) Scharner's arrived - you need players like that against the Stokes and Blackburns of this world, you need presence."
