Peter Odemwingie is back to his goal-scoring best after switching to his new role as a wide boy, according to boss Roy Hodgson.
The 30-year-old hitman found the net 15 times for West Brom last season but has found goals harder to come by this time around.
The striker was linked with a move away from the club in the January transfer window, with Hodgson's old side Fulham reported to be leading the chase for his signature.
But the Baggies retained his services and moved Odemwingie out to the right wing in a bid to kick-start his form.
He repaid the faith shown in him with a hat-trick in the 5-2 demolition of bitter rivals Wolves and Hodgson wants more of the same as West Brom aim to finish higher than their 11th place last season.
"Peter's been very lively," said Hodgson. "He now has to keep it up for the next 13 games.
"It's a third of the season, it's the final third of the season and a very important period.
"This will decide our campaign so it's good that going into this period he can hopefully build on the performance and goals he produced against Wolves.
"He came to the club as a right-winger so it's nothing new for him. He did it last year for us on a few occasions.
"It's not unusual for him to play there and maybe he is happy there sometimes maybe he'd be happier playing centrally. I guess with all players it depends.
"If he's getting enough of the ball then I'm sure he's happy out there otherwise he'll be wanting to move back into the centre."
