West Brom's Richard Chaplow is ready to prove himself in The Premiership.West Brom's young midfielder Richard Chaplow has insisted that he is ready to prove himself in The Premiership.
Chaplow has rarely featured for The Baggies since completing a £1.5 million move from Championship side Burnley in the winter transfer window.
However, the England Under-21 player started the game against Tottenham - and is keen to show that he is good enough to make the grade.
"There's two ways to look at my situation," said Chaplow. "Either I'm fresh because I haven't been playing or I'm not match fit.
"You can see it whichever way you like but I believes that I can play in The Premiership so I wasn't too worried about playing against Spurs.
"It can be quite nerve-wracking but I believe in my ability.
"I've been waiting on the sidelines for a couple of months and tried to study the differences between The Premiership and the lower divisions so I know what to expect."
