HRK focused on replicating Leeds performance

HAL Robson-Kanu is fully-focussed on reproducing his grandstand performance against Leeds United as Albion prepare for Friday’s trip to Ipswich Town.

The 28-year-old striker was the Baggies' talisman in the 4-1 victory at The Hawthorns last time out, scoring his third goal of the campaign in what was just his second start.

His superb display earned rave reviews from head coach Darren Moore who reserved special praise for the former Wales front man.

And Robson-Kanu admits he must maintain his form in order to retain a starting berth in Albion's fearsome attack.

"We have an extremely strong squad here and that's what you need in any season, particularly in the Championship," he said.

"On a personal note I'm fully focussed on replicating what I've been doing. I started off the season strongly, had a fantastic pre-season, and I'm looking forward to replicating that again now.

"I don't think any player enjoys coming off the bench, but if that is the case you have to be patient, and that's what I was.

"I had the opportunity and took it. It's now about building on it as a collective and ensuring we keep on picking up wins."

The Welshman expects a tough challenge from Ipswich who are unbeaten in two under new boss Paul Lambert.

"It's going to be a tough game, they're going to be physical, they will try to make the game difficult for us," added Robson-Kanu.

"We'll be prepared for that and we've been working on it over the last two weeks during the international break.

"We're fully focussed on the game and getting three points."
