Bryan Robson has told Robert Earnshaw he must work hard to earn his place.West Brom boss Bryan Robson has told Robert Earnshaw that he is still in his plans despite being dropped for the last two games.
The Welsh marksman has banged in ten goals in 17 games for The Baggies, but has not figured in their last two outings.
The former Cardiff man was looking for an explanation for being dropped, and Robson has told the striker that he will still get his chance.
Robson says that scoring goals is not enough and that Earnshaw must show he can work for the team.
"Rob knows that when he gets his chance he needs to be scoring goals for us," said Robson.
"His ratio per game is very good, but in the Premiership you have to have a bit more than that. Just scoring goals isn't enough.
"You need a bit more in terms of work-rate."
