Peter Odemwingie has been ruled out for at least the next two weeks after picking up a hamstring injury in training.
Mark Hughes confirmed during todays’ press-conference that Odemwingie - along with teammate Bojan Krkic - would not travel to White Hart Lane this weekend. Bojan is currently recovering from a ruptured ACL and will continue his rehab by gaining valuable game time for the under-21s. However there was better news regarding Marc Wilson and Marko Arnautovic who have trained after missing the opening day defeat to Liverpool due to respective ankle and thigh injuries. The pair should be available as long as neither suffer any adverse reaction while Erik Pieters is also back in contention having recovered from illness. Hughes will make a late decision on whether to involve Xherdan Shaqiri who signed from Inter Milan this week. Thu, Aug 13, 2015 04:41:00 PM

Peter Odemwingie scored a headed goal between two Koln goals as Stoke City dropped their final pre-season tune-up in advance of the start of the Premier League season.

Ibrahim Afellay got his first start for the Potters but couldn't help them get a pre-season win as Koln took home the title in their pre-season tournament. Peter Odemwingie, who came on as a substitute for Afellay, got a goal that will help propel him into the start of the new season but the Potters weren't as lucky. Stoke City started Butland, Johnson, Marc Muniesa, Teixeira, Pieters, Sidwell, van Ginkel, Walters, Ireland, Afellay, and Joselu for the affair.

Starters vs Brentford: Butland; Johnson, Shawcross, Muniesa, Pieters; Walters, v.Ginkel, Sidwell, Cameron, Odemwingie; Joselu

The inclusion of Marc Muniesa along with what looks like the rest of the starting defense is the most interesting note here. With drafts coming up, Muniesa could be great value if he is going to partner Shawcross on a regular basis.

Stoke City have announced a one-year contract extension for Peter Odemwingie after the player recovered from a long-term knee injury to feature down the stretch in the 2014-15 season.

Odemwingie was injured early in his Britannia stay last season and didn't come back in enough time to show too much after he recovered from his knee injury. The one year contract takes Odemwingie through the upcoming season and gives the club an option to extend it for another year at their discretion. At 34-years-old to start next season, Odemwingie will likely be primarily a reserve behind a fairly deep bench of Stoke City attackers including Mame Biram Diouf, Joselu, Peter Crouch, and Jon Walters.

With Peter Crouch, Peter Odemwingie and Jon Walters all doubts for Week 38, Mame Biram Diouf might be lonely on top of the Stoke City attack.

While none of the three forwards - Crouch, Odemwingie or Walters - has been ruled out for sure, all of them are at risk of missing out on a season finale that means little to the Potters. Stoke City haven't provided a great deal of information about any of the injuries in question in their Friday press conferences so it may be nothing but fantasy managers should beware in bringing in any of the three Stoke City forwards.

Peter Odemwingie ended a long spell on the sidelines as he returned to the Stoke City squad with a 10 minute cameo against Sunderland in Week 34.

There wasn't a great deal to behold in Odemwingie's return but his return was significant enough news on it's own. The Nigerian attacker replaced Jon Walters in the 80th minute, his first appearance after missing nearly the entire season while recovering from an early-season ACL tear. He contributed a pass intercepted and a tackle won but most importantly started the process of shaking off the rust with some competitive action.

Peter Odemwingie is coming to the end of his recovery from an ACL injury and could be ready for the bench as soon as Week 34.

This is by no means a viable fantasy option for Week 34 but if Odemwingie plays even a bit part against Sunderland then he could be in line for a more significant role over the last couple of weeks of the season. With little to achieve over the final five matches, giving Odemwingie a little playing time to help push his recovering along before the summer could actually be pretty high on Mark Hughes' agenda. Odemwingie has had some big fantasy days so he could represent an interesting option in Weeks 37 and 38 as one of the few mid-table players with something to play for.

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.

Nigeria Starting XI vs Argentina: Enyeama; Omeruo, Yobo, Ambrose, Oshaniwa; Mikel, Onazi; Babatunde, Musa, Odemwingie; Emenike.

Nigeria need a draw from this match to go on to the next round but they face a tough task in Argentina. They can also qualify if Iran fail to win.

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.
