Paul Scharner is determined to put his injury woes behind him and help West Brom claim a derby win over Wolves.

The Austria international had missed the previous three games before coming on as a second-half substitute against Swansea in the 2-1 defeat on Saturday.

Scharner's influence on the Baggies team has been restricted because of a knee injury over the last few months.

However, he is keen to recapture the form which saw him provide the assist for the winner against Wolves in October and notch the winner against Villa a week later.

The loss to Swansea dented his joy at making his return as Roy Hodgson's team continue to struggle at The Hawthorns.

"The first target for me was to get fit and back but it's a shame it's another home defeat," he told the club's official website.

"It is a very poor home run at the moment but we have to get it behind us and concentrate on the next game against Wolves.

"Yes being injured has been frustrating. It has been a bit on and off. It was a knee injury I had first, and when I came back from that, I had the Achilles problem.

"Hopefully it is all behind me now."
