West Brom attacker Jay Rodriguez has heaped the praise on Craig Dawson following the team’s 1-0 win at Manchester United on Sunday.

Speaking to the club’s official website after the match, Rodriguez singled out the West Brom defender for praise after what was an unexpected victory at Old Trafford.

When you have Dawson in your team, he’s an unbelievable header of the ball because he works on it and he’s really determined.

Rodriguez clinched the vital goal for the visitors in the 73rd minute as he latched on to a loose ball in the United area to fire home.

West Brom remain rooted to the foot of the Premier League table but they gave their supporters something to smile about as they made the journey back home.

Rodriguez has been one of West Brom’s more impressive performers this season and has proven to be good value for money since his £12m summer move from Southampton.

The Baggies are still set for relegation to the Championship this season despite their win, and they will undoubtedly be keen to hold on to both Rodriguez and Dawson in the summer.
