Peter Odemwingie enjoys perfect start


West Bromwich Albion’s recent recruit Peter Odemwingie is delighted with the way his Hawthorns career has started.

The 29-year-old Nigeria international has scored twice in four games for the Baggies since his arrival from Lokomotiv Moscow, with his latest strike helping Albion to a 3-1 derby win over Birmingham City.

Odemwingie told his club’s official website:“I’m getting a lot of support from my team-mates and fans and that gives me confidence, which I think is translated into performances.

“What I’ve noticed so far from my first four games is that West Brom play better in the second half.

“I think we try to be careful in the first half, to play safe and then go for goal.

“The coach shouted a lot in the dressing room at half-time and told us to concentrate more and play our game.

“Birmingham had some good quality players in the midfield, but I think the players we put in the middle helped us a little bit.

“Certainly, the second half was much better and a quick goal helped us to believe and go forward and get three points. We showed a lot of character.”
