The Nigerian international has served his three-match ban and may feature against winless Rangers this weekend

Peter Odemwingie has finished serving his three-match ban and is poised to return to the West Brom team in their clash against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

The Nigerian who was shown a straight red card against Fulham – his first in English football has been praised by West Brom’s first team coach, Kevin Keen for his dedication in training ahead of the weekend’s match.

"I think since I've come in and met Peter [Odemwingie] I can tell he is a really good guy," Keen said on the club's official website.

"He is great around the place, speaks goodness knows how many languages, and is good with the lads.

“I think he is always quite humble and a nice bloke and I find him an intelligent, good man.

"I would say his training over the last two weeks is as good as it's been. He's got a fantastic quality, whether it's passing and moving, or his finishing.

"His qualities are really, really top draw. I've been so impressed by him in general - and certainly over the last two weeks.

"He's chomping at the bit to get back into the team and perhaps to make up for his sending-off, and give the lads back a little bit after feeling that he maybe let them down at Fulham.

"Again, his training has been fantastic over the last two weeks and he will certainly be in Steve's thoughts for Saturday.

"He's a great player, whether starting or coming off the bench. He's got some real quality and a goal in him every time he goes on the pitch."

Odemwingie has scored just a goal this season after being the Baggies’ highest goal scorer in the last two seasons with a combined total of 25 goals.
