West Brom assistant head coach Keith Downing has challenged midfielder Somen Tchoyi to find greater consistency.

The club are well aware of the Cameroon international's ability, but want him to start showing it week-in, week-out.

The 28-year-old has not started a match for West Brom since a 2-0 loss to Liverpool in October.

Tchoyi has not been in manager Roy Hodgson's squad for the last two matches and Downing has highlighted where he needs to improve.

Consistency

"He needs to maintain that consistency because he has an abundance of talent, he's a matchwinner, as we've seen before, and he can make an impact on games, as he did at Fulham," Downing told the club's official website.

"But it's a case of him learning about positional play tactically. We know technically he has got it in abundance, but tactically it's knowing and understanding what role he needs to do as part of the team and those things are what we want.

"It's taken Roy (Hodgson) so many months to drill that into him and obviously Somen needs to take it on board on a training day and a match day. But we know his ability and he's in our plans for the final eight games."
