Ally Robertson: A promising start – now some firepower

I’ve been really encouraged by the early summer business at The Hawthorns and next up I’d like to see us bolster our firepower.

We need a goalscorer. We need to bring somebody in up front. For me, that’s the one I’d look at as a priority.

We have good attacking players I’d like us to keep hold of and it’s hard to judge how our forward line will look until the transfer deadline in September.

It would be great to get a more-experienced frontman on a permanent deal, but if we can’t afford to do that then we could go down the loan route for a striker, but one ready to play for us.

Josh Maja came in last summer but we haven’t really seen him yet because of his injury-disrupted first season. I have confidence in the gaffer to build a squad together.
