Baggies bouncing

21 August 2010 07:00
Peter Odemwingie scored a late goal on his debut to give West Brom a 1-0 win and all three Barclays Premier League points against Sunderland at the Hawthorns. Odemwingie, whose transfer from Lokomotiv Moscow had only been confirmed 24 hours earlier, wasted little time in making a name for himself at his new club, taking on James Morrison's pass and slotting home the winner with nine minutes to go. The victory marked a spirited response from the Baggies, who had started the day bottom of the Barclays Premier League table after they were thrashed 6-0 at Chelsea last week. West Brom were inches away from making it 2-0 with Chris Brunt cracking a long-range attempt against the crossbar.
