West Brom defender Jonas Olsson is hoping striker Peter Odemwingie's weekend hat-trick against Wolves will kick his season into top gear.

Odemwingie netted 15 times in his debut season and played a major role in the Baggies surviving in the Barclays Premier League. But he had struggled with injuries and a loss of form during the current campaign until his treble against Wolves which sealed the fate of manager Mick McCarthy.

Olsson said: "I know how frustrating it is for a striker when he is struggling a bit with scoring goals. Everyone knows Peter has got it in him. It was great for him to get the hat-trick and maybe he will kick on now and keep scoring."
