The Irish striker had a big say in us doing just that at the Hawthorns with the first and third goals in our 3-2 win. Teddy Sheringham also scored as we came back from 1-0 and 2-1 down.
The win went some way to put right Friday's 2-0 defeat against City at the Lane and, with results going our way, rekindled hopes of Europe.
"Everyone was devastated after City," reflected Robbie. "It wasn't just the fact we got beat but the way we got beat.
"We didn't play as well as we can and let everyone down including ourselves and especially the fans. We needed to bounce back and did that."
Simon added: "It was a massive win for us especially after Friday. The manager wanted a show of character and the boys showed it.
"On Friday there were no excuses, we just didn't do it. But we thought we played well here and thoroughly deserved to win."
Robbie Keane revealed the lads were 'devastated' after Friday's dismal defeat against City - both he and Simon Davies admitted they were desperate to put it right at West Brom.
