Robson: "That was great!"
BRYAN Robson has urged his side not to waste the opportunity to build on
their superb 2-0 victory over Barclays Premiership form team Blackburn.
Skipper Kevin Campbell and Jonathan Greening both doubled their goal tallies
for the season to two with strikes in the seventh and 32nd minutes
The Baggies' sixth home league win of the term ensured they leap-frogged
Middlesbrough - who lost 4-0 to Villa at the Riverside - into 16th place and
moved six points clear of the drop-zone.
A delighted Robson said: "We were playing some terrific football just before
Kanu and Joe Kamara went away on African Nations Cup duty and got great
results against Tottenham and Man City.
"We then had two real poor performances against Villa and Sunderland at
home - but we've started to improve our away form.
"That is why it was important we got back to winning ways at home.
"We produced a good solid performance today.
"We looked bright right from the start and that was against a strong
powerful side who are in good form.
"That was a great performance by us today."
Robson is now looking for Albion, who are just four points behind
12th-placed Villa, to secure their first back-to-back wins of the season at
Fulham next Saturday (ko 3pm).
One man who will be looking forward to returning to his former Craven
Cottage stomping ground is Junichi Inamoto.
And Robson explained why he shifted the Japan star to right midfield against
Rovers, with debutant Nigel Quashie partnering back-from-suspension Ronnie
Wallwork in central midfield.
"With Nigel coming in, I wanted a bit more balance on the right-hand side
and Ina said he had played there for Arsenal before so I wanted to have a
look at him there," he added.
"His work-rate was good, as was the shape of the team.
"Ina also showed good quality on the ball. Since we've lost Kamara and Gera,
we've been missing that balance.
"People have told me about the other results going our way but for me the
most important result was the one here.
"That is a great three points for us.
"But I want us to concentrate on getting a good run going now because too
many times in the past we have got a great result and then shot ourselves in
"All of a sudden you're back in amongst it. It can easily happen.
"What I want is a good run with consistent performances and results so that
we increase the gap over the next few weeks.
"I don't want to be going to Goodison Park on the final day needing to win."
