Bryan Robson has told his West Bromwich Albion side not to waste their hard work when they travel to Fulham this weekend.

The Baggies were comfortable winners against Blackburn on Saturday and Robson is now hoping they can put some daylight between themselves and the bottom three.

Albion are now on 26 points from 25 games and remain on course for their overall target of 40.

Robson is hoping they can add consistency to their results and achieve survival long before the final game of the season at Everton.

“People told me about the other results on Saturday but the main thing was getting a result here,” he said. “It’s a great three points for us. We need to get a good run going now because we’ve done this before where we’ve had a great result and then shot ourselves in the foot and, all of a sudden, ended up back among it struggling a bit.

“What we need is consistency so we make that gap bigger over the next few weeks. I definitely don’t want to go to Goodison Park needing to win to survive.”

Robson praised veteran goalscorer Kevin Campbell, who notched Albion’s opening goal despite not being fully 100 per cent due to a groin injury.

“I went for Campbell and Horsfield up front to give us a presence,” added Robson. “With their experience we knew they wouldn’t be out-muscled and I thought Horsfield was very good.
