West Brom boss Mowbray: Cech keeping Robinson on his toes

West Brom boss Tony Mowbray admits left-back Paul Robinson is under pressure to keep his place following the arrival of Marek Cech.

"By bringing Marek in I was trying to create competition in all areas of the pitch," Mowbray told the Birmingham Mail.

"It is important that Paul Robinson has genuine competition for his position and maybe the fact that Marek Cech was at the club contributed to the fact that Paul gave such an outstanding performance on Saturday (at Arsenal).

"It might not have been the direct reason but I think competition focuses the mind of every footballer in the team."
