West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie named Player of the Month for April

Nigerian international picks up award for second time this season thanks to his efforts in raising the Baggies from relegation battlers to all but safe survivors

West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie has been named Barclays Premier League Player of the Month for April after the Nigerian international impressed with his form in front of goal.

It is the second time the former Lokomotiv Moscow player has won the award this season, with the forward impressing last month under boss Roy Hodgson, as the Midlands side look to have secured their future in England’s top flight.

The striker won two penalties against Liverpool at the beginning of the month to give his side a 2-1 win over the Merseyside outfit and Hodgson’s former employers. Odemwingie followed that by having a hand in all three goals in the Baggies’ thrilling 3-2 win against Sunderland, as the 29-year-old set up two and scored one.


The summer signing also netted against Chelsea and Tottenham and rounded off a sensational month by helping West Brom overcome local rivals Aston Villa by scoring the equaliser in their 2-1 win over Gerard Houllier’s side.
