Bryan Robson paid tribute to new signings Kieran Richardson and Richard Chaplow.Bryan Robson believes his new signings Kieran Richardson and Richard Chaplow can make an impact on their Premiership survival bid.
Richardson has arrived on loan for the rest of the season from Robson's old club Manchester United, while Chaplow has been lured to the top flight from Championship side Burnley.
Robson believes the two youngsters will not be fazed by playing in the top flight, and both will have a point to prove.
The Baggies remain deep in relegation trouble following a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Tuesday, but Robson has faith in his new additions.
"I've brought the two lads in who are 19 and 20 and they have loads of enthusiasm and really want to achieve things in the game," Robson told Sky Sports News.
"I know all about Kieran from Manchester United and he'll want to prove to Ferguson that he can do it at this level before he goes back and I'm sure he'll do that.
"I was impressed with him when he came on against Palace. His work rate was great, his passing was good and he kept his composure.
"Lads at his age don't have any fear and just want to play their football and I think Chaplow will be exactly the same.
"He can create and score goals, so hopefully he can do that for us between now and the end of the season."
