In those six matches, Reid has a pass accuracy of 78% and has won three headers and five tackles.
Burnley, who gained promotion to the Premier League last season, have been relegated to the Championship.
The Clarets will face Aston Villa away from home at Villa Park in the final game of the 2014-15 Premier League campaign on Sunday.
