West Bromwich Albion are a staff determined for a goalscorer, with Karlan Grant struggling in entrance of aim and Brandon Thomas-Asante an unproven expertise having joined late on in the summertime window.

The previous has simply three targets this season regardless of having performed in all of their league fixtures.

Would you’re taking Odemwingie again now?




They’re at the moment languishing in 20th, with only one win from ten within the Championship, and with simply 15 targets scored in ten video games (5 of which got here in a single match).

One man who would definitely inject some confidence into this misfiring outfit is former striker Peter Odemwingie, who Steve Bruce could be wishing he had now for his present toothless facet.

Throughout 90 appearances for the Baggies, the Nigerian marksman bagged 31 instances, while additionally offering 17 assists. That signifies that he contributed to no less than one aim as soon as each 1.8 video games.

It isn’t going to set the world alight however that form of stable proficiency in entrance of aim, alongside a stable defence that Bruce might be determined to domesticate, may have been the proper mixture for achievement.

Throughout the 2011/12 Premier League season, ten targets in 30 appearances introduced him as a reasonably dependable choice up entrance.

To carry this type right down to the Championship would certainly see his targets enhance, and he could possibly be the ultimate piece of the puzzle to permit West Brom to kick on in the direction of promotion as soon as extra.

Signed in 2010 for simply an undisclosed price, this “great” ahead would positively be the reply to their prayers may they return him to the present facet in his prime.

Not solely was he an enormous success on the pitch, however the truth that he left and recouped a £2.5m price made him an all-around success for the membership.

If solely he may carry a few of that means now, they won’t have had such a lacklustre begin to the brand new marketing campaign.

What began out as a promotion-chasing season has rapidly grow to be all about stabilisation, however with a correct ahead like Odemwingie they would definitely have extra than simply the one win in the direction of their goals.
