Gabriel Agbonlahor has been very impressed with West Brom forward Callum Robinson’s performances leading the line.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England striker revealed he was “glad” to see his former Villa teammate getting a regular run of starts in Sam Allardyce’s side.
Robinson has now started the Baggies’ last five Premier League games – his longest run of starts this season.
At the beginning of the campaign, the 25-year-old operated out wide and in behind striker Karlan Grant.
However, in their last three games, Robinson has led the line in the absence of Grant who is out injured until at least the end of the month.
The Republic of Ireland international put in arguably his best performance of the season in Saturday’s Black Country Derby with Wolves where he won two penalties as Albion earned just their second league win of the season.
Asked by Football Insider for his assessment of Robinson’s performance at Molineux, Agbonlahor said: “I thought he did well, Callum.
“He is a pest, he was running in behind, he was working hard and was trying to make things happen.
“For me, he’s done very well and I’m just glad to see he’s getting starts now.
“He’s got what it takes at that level, definitely.”
Robinson moved to The Hawthorns on loan last January and completed a permanent deal from Sheffield United in the summer that saw Oliver Burke head to Bramall Lane.
The Northampton-born ace has played 35 times for Albion and has scored six goals and provided two assists for the club.
