Midweek Sport - - SPORTS - By BREN­DAN MCLOUGH­LIN

JONAS OLS­SON reck­ons derby-day hat-trick her o Peter Odemwingie is a match for any­one in the Premier League.

Nige­ria ace Odemwingie who bagged 15 top-flight goals last ter m, had only scor

ed four this sea­son be­for e Sun­day’s tr eble in the 5-1 de­mo­li­tion of Wolves.

Skip­per Ols­son said: “I know just how frus­trat­ing it can be for a striker when he is strug­gling a bit with scor­ing goals – and on Sun­day he got three.

“Ev­ery­one knows he’s got it in him and maybe he will kick on and keep scor­ing.

“When he is on for m he is one of the best in the league.

“It is one thing do­ing that for a Man United or an Arse­nal, but scor­ing 15 goals for W est Brom is a top per­for­mance.

“He has kept work­ing hard and on Sun­day he got his re­wards.”

Paul Scharner r eck­ons Sun­day’s vic­tor y pr oved Al­bion are too good to go down.

He said: “If you look at our per for­mance against Wolves we shouldn’t think too much about a rel­e­ga­tion fight.”
