Hodgson refuses to gloat

West Brom manager Roy Hodgson insisted he took no greater pleasure in beating Liverpool on his first return to his former club than he did in ending a Baggies' hoodoo.

Peter Odemwingie's 75th-minute goal completely against the run of play secured their first win at Anfield 45 years to the day of their last victory at the ground. The fact it was against the club who dispensed with his services after a disappointing six-month reign was less significant, according to Hodgson,

"It is always enjoyable to win even if you need a bit of luck on your side to achieve it," said the West Brom boss. "Forty-five years is a long time for a team like West Brom not to get a result at Anfield. Maybe this result was written in the stars because with the last win being 45 years ago to the day maybe there is an element of fate about it."
