Despite being booed by his former employers, controversial Nigerian forward Osaze Odemwingie smiled home after his current side Cardiff City defeated West Bromich Albion 1-o through a Peter Whittingham goal in the 65th minute. The defeat ended Cardiff’s five-match without-a-win streak and condemned West Brom to a fourth-straight defeat.

The defeat culminated in the sack of Steve Clarke who will now be referred to as erstwhile manager of West Brom

Osaze Odemwingie nearly scored through a free-kick but Boaz Myhill managed to force a super-save

The fleet-footed player also had a penalty appeal turned down by Howard Webb when a West Brom player appeared to pull his shirt when he was about to take a decisive final touch inside the box.

Osaze was substituted for Bo-Kyung Kim in the 90th minute.

Cardiff City now lie 14th on the English Premier League table with 17 points from 16 games.
