West Brom boss Gary Megson has backed striker Robert Earnshaw to start finding the net on a regular basis.

The diminutive Welsh striker has failed to set The Premiership alight following his move from Cardiff, but Megson feels it is only a matter of time before Earnshaw finds his range.

"I feel a bit sorry for Earnie," said Megson. "Yes, he should have scored with a penalty against Fulham and he was just the narrowest of margins away from getting one against Liverpool. Then he trod on the ball against Newcastle.

"If they had gone in, everyone would have been saying it was a wonderful start. That's the difference so I've had a word with him.

"All he needs is a little time to settle."
