Hal happy with contribution

2 November 2019

Hal Robson-Kanu is delighted with his recent input after netting twice from the bench in the space of seven days for Slaven Bilić’s Baggies.

The Baggies forward grabbed a late winner at Middlesbrough before netting again against Charlton a week later.
 
Despite starting just one Sky Bet Championship game this season, Hal insists he has been happy with his involvement and reiterated that the success of the whole squad is greater than that of the individual, ahead of Monday night’s clash at Stoke.
 
“I think it is important to continue to contribute towards the group and stay emotionally positive with the group,” Hal added.
 
“It is a long season at the end of the day and you are going to need everyone throughout the squad. You want strong competition. 
 
“Last year we had top strikers here - Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez and before that we had the likes of Salomon Rondon and Saido Berahino. 
 
“There’s always top, top strikers available and you need that to be successful in any league. I think it is important that we have that and that we are all vying for a place and we are all performing and that’s ultimately what is going to contribute towards a successful season.
 
“I feel I have always contributed over the course of the season. Every time I have played I have always made an impact. Every player wants to play games and I am no different. But it’s about the squad and contributing to that squad in games and maintaining a high level of performance and that is what is going to make us successful.
 
“It’s been nice. I think we’d have liked to get a few more wins out of the games but I think that shows where we are at in the league and in terms of the squad and the boys. On a personal note it is fantastic to be contributing to the team. It’s something I have done over the years here along with other top strikers since I have been at the Club.
 
“Now the focus is just on moving things forward and continuing the momentum and keeping everything moving in the right direction.
 
“My goal against Charlton was with my weaker foot so I will take that definitely. It was nice to have gone 2-1 up in the game - I thought we had done enough to hold on but in this league it is tough and you have to be at it for 95 minutes or more. 
 
“In the end it was a decision out of our control that meant we didn’t pick up the win but it was positive going down to ten men and still showing that fight and desire and that is something we want to take on throughout the season.”
