Peter Odemwingie believes he is getting back to his best and has vowed to start hitting the back of the net for West Brom once again.

The striker is adamant that he is close to full fitness after suffering a pre-season ankle injury in a friendly at Bristol City.

Odemwingie has lacked sharpness since returning to the Baggies' first team despite playing 120 minutes against Everton in the Carling Cup on Wednesday before another 90 minutes in Saturday's goalless draw at home to Fulham.

The Nigeria international is desperate to show manager Roy Hodgon that he is not a one-season wonder although he is aware he has become more of a marked man this season.

Better

Odemwingie, who scored 15 goals in his debut season, said: "Is the full sharpness there? It is getter better. It was coming more against Fulham and hopefully there are no more setbacks.

"At Everton I got two good kicks on the ankle, against Fulham on the Achilles. English football is not easy. It is sometimes tough.

"Defenders pay more attention. They will not be under-rating my abilities after last season.

"But I am very motivated and the excitement of playing in the Premier League is still there.

"Even though I had a good season last season, I am not still satisfied and hopefully I can build now my confidence, get back to good physical condition and start scoring again."
