Despite the striker’s worrying departure on a stretcher at The Etihad on Saturday Mark Hughes confirmed post-match that the injury suffered by Peter Odemwingie was "nothing sinister." However after a weekend of further testing fears are beginning to mount that the Nigerian striker could be ruled out for the remainder of the campaign with suspected cruciate ligament damage.
Peter Odemwingie had just returned to the Stoke first team squad following his late arrival post-World Cup and was introduced as a second half substitute in Manchester but collapsed to the turf after 20 minutes as he stood away from the play. If confirmed, the injury could sideline the Stoke player for around 9 months with Mark Hughes potentially making a late move in the transfer market on deadline day as the Potters look for additional attacking cover.

Peter Odemwingie scored the only goal in Nigeria's 1-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Nigeria were the better team for the majority of the match and deservedly took the three points. Odemwingie scored their only goal after a slightly controversial no-call from the referee on a foul that occurred earlier in Nigeria's possession. There was also controversy when Edin Dzeko's goal was waived off incorrectly for offside. Despite the two questionable calls, Nigeria was clearly the better team. Bosnia pushed late in an attempt to equalize but Dzeko's effort was saved by Vincent Enyeama before hitting the sidebar. Bosnia are eliminated while Nigeria have a solid lead on the number two spot in group F.

Nigeria struggled to threaten much and settled for a point in a 0-0 draw with Iran.

Peter Odemwingie started on the bench and when he came into the game with about 20 minutes to go, it was the first sign of life from the Nigerian attack. The showing was consistent with their previous match against the United States just before the tournament began. The result opens the door for Bosnia and Herzegovina to grab 2nd position in the group. Joseph Yobo of Norwich City replaced an injured Godfrey Oboabona and may be pegged to start in their next match.

Peter Odemwingie was a major part of a menacing Stoke City attack that carved up the Fulham defense as he contributed a goal and an assist in a 4-1 win over the Cottagers.

The Odemwingie-Kenwyne Jones swap with Cardiff City certainly worked out well for the Potters. After scoring just once in the first half of the season for Cardiff, Odemwingie's goal today gives him six for Stoke. He scored today's opener, tapping in a rebound that shot straight up into the air off of a Stephen Ireland shot, he then linked up with Marco Arnautovic on one of several successful counter-attacks to pick up an assist. Arnautovic would receive an assist as well, finding Oussama Assaidi with a low cross for the third goal. Two substitutes, Jon Walters and Charlie Adam would figure in the final goal, with Walters bagging his 5th of the season thanks to Adam's through ball. It has been a solid season for the Potters who have a good shot finishing in the top half of the table.

Peter Odemwingie, who has been reborn since his move away from Cardiff in January, scored his fourth in nine matches and third in a row to give Stoke City a 1-0 win against Hull City.

It isn't clear what about playing at West Brom puts forwards off of their games but January saw two recent WBA forwards - Shane Long and Peter Odemwingie - increase their production after leaving the Hawthorns. In Odemwingie's case it took half a season of poor production at Cardiff City to shake off the rust but he's come good again for Stoke with goals in his last three matches and 4 goals in 9 matches overall since joining the club. An impressive return for a forward whose production has been declining for three seasons.

Stoke City took all three points from VIlla Park in a convincing 4-1 win over Aston Villa.

Villa went ahead early in the game but Stoke recovered halfway through the first half and dominated the rest of the game. Peter Odemwingie, Peter Crouch, Steven N'Zonzi, and Geoff Cameron all got on the score sheet. Most of the goals were the direct result of an unorganized Aston Villa defense which made many errors. Both teams are stuck in the middle of the table and this result won't have a big impact on their future.

Peter Odemwingie scored two goals to help Stoke City to a 3-1 home win over West Ham.

Stoke City continued their impressive home record with a comfortable win over West Ham. Marko Arnautovic scored the other goal for Stoke. Stoke dominated big parts of the game and the stats showed it. They had 17 shots to West Ham's 8 and had 9 shots on target versus West Ham's 2. They controlled 55% of the possession and were the more impressive side overall. Their defense can generally be trusted at home, but I wouldn't play anyone from their side away from the Britannia.

Peter Odemwingie left West Brom under a very dark cloud after, sometime farcically, trying to force a transfer last January. He could start against them with Cardiff, as both clubs look to arrest recent slides.

While Odemwingie isn't on anyone's fantasy radar at the moment, he is facing his former club and is known as "Peter Snow" for his performances in the colder climes. It's probably not worth a punt, but certainly worth watching, this weekend.

Making his second start for Cardiff City, Peter Odemwingie scored his first goal for his new club, but Cardiff lose at home to Newcastle United 1-2.

The goal came with Newcastle controlling the match but Odemwingie's goal made things interesting in the final half hour. It was a teamwork goal that involved Aron Gunnarsson charging down the left flank, laying off a nice pass to Jordan Mutch who then flicked on a touch pass to Odemwingie who slotted home. Odemwingie is past his prime at this point, but if his form begins to emerge, then he could be a possible budget 3rd striker option in the right matchup.

Peter Odemwingie finally got his desired move away from the Hawthorns with a move to Cardiff City on deadline day.

With Andreas Cornelius struggling for fitness and a general need for Premier League experience in the attack, Odemwingie is a reasonable risk for newly promoted Cardiff City. The big question is whether, at 32 years-old, Odemwingie can recapture the form that saw him score 15 goals for the Baggies during the 2010-11 season. His output has declined from that height to 10 and then to 5 over the last three seasons. Is there one final burst of production before he fades away? He should get the playing time required to find out.

Peter Odemwingie appears close to finally getting his wish and leaving West Brom for London with Crystal Palace his probable landing spot.

The value of this move for Crystal Palace and Odemwingie may be questionable but it will certainly be a good thing for the Baggies. Getting Odemwingie's wages off the books and removing a player who doesn't want to be there from the locker room will both be major positives. Any transfer fee will be icing on the cake. The big question is whether Steve Clarke can add to the Anelka signing and replace Odemwingie as well - hopefully with someone a little younger.

Crystal Palace have joined Swansea City as potential destinations for want-away West Brom forward Peter Odemwingie.

Peter Odemwingie, who famously knows how to drive from the Midlands to London, may finally get his move to the big city. Crystal Palace, looking to find inexpensive goal-scoring options to boost their chances of staying up, have been linked with Odemwingie. Given Odemwingie's decline paying a transfer fee and/or a high salary could represent a risk for Palace. If they get him on the cheap though, he has great upside if he can find the form of a few seasons ago secure in the knowledge that he will be a starter.

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is rumored to be taking a healthy interest in West Brom's want-away forward Peter Odemwingie.

Swansea have been developing a reputation of buying young, lesser-known talents that fit their system as they have established themselves as a Premier League regular. Purchasing Odemwingie - who is older and seemingly in decline - would be a shocking reversal of course. Maybe Michael Laudrup knows something that we don't but it would be a major surprise if this one comes to fruition regardless of how much Swansea needs a new forward.
