Robson-Kanu grabbed the victor for West Brom during their 1-0 victory over Burnley on Sunday but he got himself sent off later on after seemingly elbowing into Matt Lowton.

The Baggies have started the Premier League campaign with two wins from two games, and Pulis will reward some of his first-team stars with a midweek break.

But Robson-Kanu's joy was short lived as Atkinson decided a clumsy challenge on Lowton merited a straight red.

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis will have the final say over whether to sign Kevin Wimmer, after the club's board gave the green light to a £15m (€16.4m, $19.3m) deal for the Tottenham Hotspur defender.

For all their good work in midfield, the Clarets lacked sharpness near goal with substitute Jonathan Walters missing a great chance in the final moments, with an off-target header when left unmarked in the box.

"And then the sending off is obviously disappointing".

'I've not seen it but I will have a good look at it afterwards and then I'll comment on it.

"We have performed very well today and got nothing, so it's a unusual feeling".

"I am disappointed with the outcome but definitely not with the performance".

"It's market forces. The two things are, firstly we don't want to sell him, we don't need to sell him".
