Bryan Robson has paid tribute to West Brom´s leading scorer Geoff Horsfield and admitted the striker is "a better footballer than I gave him credit for".

Baggies boss Robson was always aware of Horsfield´s battling qualities and his physical presence, but he has been surprised by his other qualities, including awareness of other team-mates and using the ball intelligently.

Robson told PA Sport: "I´ve always thought Geoff was a hard worker, someone who makes it difficult for defenders because of his physical presence. But he has got other strings to his bow. His actual link-up play is very good. He sees midfield runners coming up to join him and he has got a nice touch on the ball where he brings people into the game."
