West Brom boss Hodgson impressed by Dawson in QPR win

West Bromwich Albion boss Roy Hodgson was delighted with Craig Dawson's performance in victory over QPR.

Albion overcame the loss of defender Jonas Olsson with a groin injury in the build-up to the game with youngster Dawson stepping into the breach.

Hodgson said: "We lost Jonas just before the game which doesn't help. Zamora is an outstanding target player, a real handful to play against and he would have been a handful for Jonas.

"For an inexperienced player like Craig, it would have been even harder.

"But I thought he stood up to his task really well. He couldn't stop Bobby playing well but restricted the number of chances he got and assists he was able to make."
