West Brom defender Dawson inspired by Man Utd pair Smalling, Jones

West Bromwich Albion defender Craig Dawson admits he's drawing inspiration from Manchester United pair Chris Smalling and Phil Jones.

Dawson admits that it's hard not to look up to the Manchester United duo because they are shining examples of how to build a successful career.

"They're both doing well, they're settled, they've got their heads down and they're pushing for places in the first team," he told the Sunday Mercury.

"They're good examples of players who have made the step up and of course you can take inspiration from those guys.

"(Smalling) has done very well and I'm sure he's worked very hard to get to where he has got to today."
