Welsh international striker Hal Robson-Kanu was delighted with his own impact in the weekend’s game against Arsenal.

Hosting Arsene Wenger’s side at The Hawthorns for the game, West Brom took a three one victory and Robson-Kanu got his second goal of the campaign when he came on as a substitute, with Craig Dawson getting the brace of headers either side of his goal.

Speaking to in his own post game press conference, Robson-Kanu spoke of Albion getting ‘some momentum’ again as we move forward to the end of the campaign.

‘It was obviously nice to make that impact. We’ve been working hard and doing well all season, it’s games like that in which it pays off. James McClean has done well, I thought he was probably going to touch it. It was a good decision from him and an important goal for us to win the game.’

With successive defeats ahead of the Arsenal clash, Robson-Kanu also knew it was a huge victory for us.

‘Yes, of course. I think you’re always going to have runs like that in the Premier League, it’s such a tough league with so much quality in it. But we’re back to winning ways and hopefully we can build some momentum and kick on again.’

With Dawson getting the brace of headers, he also came in for praise from the striker.

‘We’re a threat, we’re a physical team and we’ve dominated a lot of sides this season. That’s been a massive strength of ours and obviously set-pieces comes into that too. It was good to see Daws on the end of them.’

The Welshman ended his short interview by talking about his delight at his own impact on the game.

‘It’s always frustrating when you’re not starting but, the manager will tell you, I’ve been working my socks off in training. Everyone is working to a level where it’s positive competition in the group, that’s what you need at this level. Hopefully we can get some momentum going forward. We’re certainly not taking our foot off the pedal. The manager has said he wants us to work even harder now we’re at that 40-point mark. That’s what’s we’ve been doing in training and I think it showed in the game. It was an important win but we’re certainly looking forward to building on it.’
