Peter Odemwingie has targeted his first ever 15-goal haul after becoming Albion's equal-best Premier League marksman in Saturday's win at Sunderland.

Odemwingie's 11th goal of an impressive debut English season saw him draw level with Robert Earnshaw's record for a Baggies player in the Premier League.

But the Nigeria international has set his sights on beating his own career high of 14, during his time with French club Lille.

The 29-year-old said: "Of course it will be mentioned if I get more than 11 and I will be happy with that.

"But my target is still to beat my own record, which was 14 goals in a season, and hopefully I can get there.

"It is just a plus for me that I am holding the record for the number of goals in the Premier League for West Brom.

"I'm sure one day someone will beat it but hopefully I will get more than 11.

"There are still six games to go and it is possible to get 15 - especially if they give me every penalty!"

Odemwingie's latest goal helped Albion extend their unbeaten run to seven matches, including six under new boss Roy Hodgson, who has guided them to the top half of the Premier League table.

And the former Lokomotiv Moscow forward today lifted the lid on Hodgson's no-nonsense approach to turning the Baggies' season around, after taking over from Roberto Di Matteo.

The striker said: "It's about his approach to the training process, which is very important.

"I remember once he mentioned how many minutes we had left in training and said he's not there to mess about in any of the minutes.

"Even if we have one minute left he is going to use it. But once training has ended he is another person. He walks with you and jokes with you and talks about different things.

"In the performances you can see a little bit of the seriousness and competition is back in the team.

"It's obvious from the team spirit that he is a stronger person, he's really got everyone knuckled down in training and working hard.

"That transfers into a good performance in the game."
