West Brom striker Callum Robinson failed to make an impact in the West Midlands derby clash due to fatigue, according to Sky Sports pundit Don Goodman.

Missing out on just 14 minutes of football over the international break, the Irishman is in fantastic form. Coming into the West Midlands derby, Robinson scored five goals in two games for the Republic of Ireland, including a hat-trick against Qatar. However, he didn’t continue his goalscoring run on Friday, being dragged off at half-time.

West Brom boss Valerian Ismael through Robinson straight into the starting 11 to lead the line. In a cagey encounter, the forward had no clear-cut chances to add to his three goals this campaign.

Speaking on air, Goodman said: “He struggled, didn’t he a little bit Robinson? There is no question about that.

“I think maybe a bit of fatigue?”

Robinson managed just 18 touches in the first 45 minutes, having two shots, both not finding the target.

The goals over the international break will be very much welcomed to the 26-year-old. Having scored three goals in the first three league games, he hasn’t found the back of the net in the league since.

It was his attacking partner Karlan Grant who made the difference against Blues. His low piledriver flew past Birmingham goalkeeper, Matija Sarkic.

With Grant and Robinson, the Baggies have a formidable strike force as they attempt to climb straight back to the Premier League.

Valerian Ismael on injured Mowatt

West Brom’s Alex Mowatt suffered a foot injury against Blues in the match.

The midfielder has been an influential figure in the Baggies side this season but has been battling with the continuous problem.

The former Barnsley man was brought off in the 62nd minute of the game.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “We knew before the game it could be a risk but Alex had a good feeling and I think he took the right decision to go out.

The good thing is it’s a bruise, it’s not something broken. We need to manage the injury until the next game.”

West Brom climbed to the top of the table with the victory over their Midlands rivals.
