Albion forward playing the waiting game

West Bromwich Albion

Hal Robson-Kanu says he is not worried about his lack of action so far this season and feels he will get his chance at West Brom.

The 27-year-old has yet to make a start for Albion since joining on a free transfer during the off-season, with the Wales international waiting until late on in the summer before deciding which club he wanted to play for.

Robson-Kanu’s lack of a pre-season has left him playing catch up at the Hawthorns, limiting his game time to just eight substitute appearances.

The former Reading forward does not appear worried by his failure to break into Tony Pulis’ starting XI, claiming he needs to prove himself a worthy addition to the team on the training pitch before he can expect opportunities.

“Everyone wants to play football,” he told the Express & Star. “But you have to be patient sometimes. I’m working hard in training, and I’ve been happy with my performances when I’ve been on the pitch.

“I’m trying to work my way into the side, but it’s not about individual players, it’s about the team.”

Robson-Kanu went on to praise the effect Pulis is having on his game, admitting his knowledge of football is proving invaluable.

“His experience is second to none,” he added. “He know what’s required. He gets everyone motivated, and he knows this league inside out.”
