Peter Odemwingie: Hat-trick helped West Brom to victory over Wolves
Peter Odemwingie urged West Brom to push on up the table after celebrating a hat-trick in the 5-1 derby victory over Wolves.
Jonas Olsson and Keith Andrews also scored for the Baggies at Molineux against Wolves, who briefly levelled at the end of the first half through Steven Fletcher.
Odemwingie was delighted to net a treble in such an important game for the club and feels West Brom can now start to think about a top-half finish.
"I've been looking forward to returning to scoring form," said the striker after Albion moved eight points clear of the relegation zone.
"It's my first hat-trick in the Premier League, a very tough league to score in, so I'm very happy about that.
"And the extra bonus I got was [that it was] in the Black Country derby so it makes it double joy for me.
"I hope we can change our home performances and then there's nothing that can stop us finishing in the top 10."
Odemwingie said he and his team-mates were in no doubt about how much the match meant to the West Brom fans.
"We know this game means a lot to our fans so we're very delighted with winning and scoring lots of goals," he said.
"There was a lot of motivation, receiving messages from our fans [about] how they look forward to these games makes the week special. You prepare well, you rest a lot.
"It was a very big game for us, a great team performance."
