After 13 sub appearances, Hal Robson-Kanu finally got a place in West Brom’s starting 11 on Saturday, with the Welsh attacker producing a superb match-winning display which saw him provide an assist and then score a magnificent effort.

West Brom did concede the opening goal of the game at St. Mary’s, when striker Shane Long ended his own goal-drought on 41 minutes.

Just two minutes later, the Baggies were level, with Matt Phillips firing home from a Robson-Kanu assist.

Then, early in the second-half, Welsh international Robson-Kanu capped his first start for West Brom, with a rocket of a shot which arrowed into the top corner…

That goal would prove to be the winner in a game which saw Southampton centre-half Virgil van Dijk see red at the death.

Robson-Kanu’s strike was also his first goal for club or country since THAT goal for Wales against Belgium at EURO 2016.

West Brom go eighth, one place about Southampton.
