West Brom defender Nicky Shorey is hoping the arrival of Roy Hodgson at West Bromwich Albion will resurrect his career.

The 29-year-old defender struggled to hold down a first-team position under former boss Roberto Di Matteo since making a costly error against Wigan.

He told the Birmingham Mail:  “No-one came to see me, I went to ask the questions and that was a bit disappointing when you’re a senior pro.

“You’d like someone to talk to you, that’s all you’re asking for. It is always disappointing when you’re not playing. I’m not going to go into the ins and outs of it.

“That’s football and it has happened to me before and it might happen again. It’s just nice to get back into the team now. I’ve got a couple of games under my belt and there was a bit of hard work for me on Saturday.

“Hopefully now I’ll get the opportunity. That’s the second game under my belt and it was a bit of a slog in the end but I’m getting there,” he added.

“But hopefully another couple of games and I’ll be back in my stride again. It’s always disappointing when a manager gets the sack because no-one wants to see that.

“But the lads are looking forward to a new challenge and hopefully he (Hodgson) can come in and give us the help we need.”
