'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Odemwingie Praises Shane's Professionalism

Peter Odemwingie has revealed that Shane Long's nan passed away this week, but he was full of praise for his commitment during the Chelsea game.

Long revealed a shirt saying 'Rest in Peace Nan' as he opened the scoring, and then set up Odemwingie for the second, but Peter didn't realise what had happened until they returned to the dressing room celebrating.

Speaking to wba.co.uk following the game, Odemwingie explained.

'I didn't know when I was playing but I saw that he was a bit sad when everyone was celebrating in the dressing room afterwards. I noticed there was something wrong with him but I didn't know what had really happened. He deserves a lot of respect as he came to help us when we needed him even in this situation and he deserved his man of the match. We must say thank you to him for staying strong because we needed him today and without him the result could have been different, so well done to him. I hope he is able to get over his loss and he is happy and smiling again soon.'

As for the game itself, Odemwingie added.

'It felt great to be in the top five and today was an opportunity to climb a little bit more up the table. We believe in ourselves and we've proven that so far. The gaffer told us that we shouldn't be disappointed being 1-1 with Chelsea, that lifted us and I think we deserved the victory.'

Fair play Shane, I'm sure many fans' thoughts are with you.
