West Brom fans react to Hal Robson-Kanu’s contribution against Aston Villa


West Bromwich Albion outclassed their bitter rivals Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday. First half strikes from Jay Rodriguez and Hal Robson-Kanu secured a 2-0 victory for the Baggies.

Robson-Kanu came into Darren Moore’s starting XI in place of the suspended Dwight Gayle, and had a terrific impact. The 29-year-old Welshman produced a fine headed finish in the 41st minute to put the visitors ahead.

The 44-cap former Wales international also provided some great hold up play, and used his strength and physicality well, throughout the match.

The forward has had his critics at the Hawthorns, but he showed against the Villans that he has the quality to contribute positively for Moore’s side when called upon. With Gayle set to be suspended for Tuesday’s clash with QPR too, Robson-Kanu ought to retain his place in the starting XI if he’s fit to start.

After the game, plenty of West Brom fans took to Twitter to discuss Robson-Kanu’s display…
