Bryan Robson was full of praise for rookie goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak.Bryan Robson believes keeping West Brom in The Premiership would be his greatest achievement after watching his side earn a point at Old Trafford.
Despite being second best for large spells, a Robert Earnshaw penalty secured a 1-1 draw that preserves The Baggies' top flight status for another week at least.
Albion's substitute keeper Tomasz Kuszczak - on for groin-injury victim Russell Hoult - was magnificent all afternoon and earned special praise from Robson.
Albion conclude their season with a home game against Portsmouth, while Crystal Palace are away to Charlton, Southampton are at home to United and Norwich travel to Fulham.
Robson believes Earnshaw's strike has given them a chance of survival going into what will be an eventful final day next week.
"It's a good result for us because at least if we win our game a draw isn't good enough for them and we've certainly put more pressure on them,'' said Robson.
"If we do stay up it will be the best achievement I've had in football.
"In the first half we didn't get out of our box at all. Our passing was dreadful. At least in the second half we passed the ball better and we got a few breaks, which we haven't been getting.
"He's (Kuszczak) inexperienced but he's a real good athlete and he did really well for us today."
