Super Eagles legend who scored a hat-trick against Wolves hails Ajayi
- Osaze Odemwingie has celebrated West Brom's 3-2 victory over Wolves in the Premier League
- The Super Eagles legend scored a hat-trick for the Baggies in the same fixture played in 2012
- Nigerian defender Semi Ajayi was also on target at the Molineux as they keep their hopes of surviving alive
West Bromwich Albion kept their Premier League survival hopes alive following a hard-earned 3-2 victory and it did not go unnoticed with former striker Osaze Odemwingie.
Nigerian international Semi-Ajayi was among the scorers as Super eagles legend Odemwingie also acknowledged the brilliant header scored by the defender.
Odemwingie who spent three seasons at the Hawthorns scoring 30 goals in 87 appearances said on his Twitter handle after the win:
“Great performance. A Nigerian on the score sheet huh…we love this game. We need to win more games with this same approach, boys.”
Sam Allardyce men were resolute in the win at the Molineux as Matheus Pereira scored from the spot in the ninth minute before Fabio Silva equalized for Wolves.
Wily Boly then got Nuno Espirito Santo's men in front two minutes before half time but Seni Ajayi leveled matters seven minutes after the restart.
Pereira then scored another penalty which turned out to be the match-winner as the derby ended 3-2 in favour of visiting West Brom.
The last time both teams met in the English topflight division Odemwingie scored a hat-trick, making him the Baggies' first player net three goals in the Premier League.
It was Semi-Ajayi's second league goal of the season for West Brom with his first coming against English champions Liverpool in their 1-1 draw at Anfield.
