Peter Odemwingie Set To Return For Stoke Before End Of Season

Listen to article

Peter Odemwingie is on track to play for Stoke again this season after recovering from a serious knee injury.

The Nigerian striker made a significant impact during the second half of last season after joining the club in a swap deal with Cardiff forward Kenwyne Jones in January 2014.

But the 33-year-old has been sidelined with cruciate knee ligament damage since the end of August.

“I'm joining the team (in training) again and it's a big step in my rehab,” Odemwingie told Sky Sports News HQ.

“It's just a bit over six months and I'm really pleased because it's a bit earlier than some players. I hope to be mentally right but it looks OK.

“I'm not scared and hopefully I can get one or two games before the end of the season.”

Stoke will be hoping Odemwingie can recapture the pre-injury form that saw him score five goals in 15 Premier League games.
