Peter Odemwingie scored for the third game in a row in the 32nd round of matches in the English Premier League.

Against Hull City at the Britannia Stadium, the former West Brom and Cardiff City striker netted just after the hour mark, his fifth goal for the Potters in the championship since he joined them in the January transfer window.

And manager Mark Hughes could not hide his admiration for the Nigeria international, whom he tried to sign last summer.

In his post match comments, the coach said :  “We’re pleased with what he’s producing. He’s obviously come in and he wasn’t a risk really because he’s an accomplished Premier League player who has scored goals at this level so we know what we were getting.”

“In fairness to Peter he’s come in and seamlessly picked up some outstanding form. I think that comes in being happy in his environment and happy in the players that surround him,” Hughes concluded.

Peter Odemwingie had a five – game scoring streak while defending the colors of West Brom back in the 2010 – 2011 campaign.

He will be hoping to equal that when Stoke take on Chelsea and Newcastle United in their next two fixtures in the Premier League.
