RH: Odemwingie's ankle is fine

BY foxsports • October 11, 2011

Odemwingie will head to Amsterdam to get the all-clear from a specialist after his country's shock failure to qualify for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Guinea. Hodgson added that the club's Hungary midfielder Zoltan Gera will join Odemwingie in Holland to be given the OK on his ankle problem. "There is no question of an operation for Peter," said Hodgson. "The doctor, Mark Gillett, has a very good relationship with him and whenever Peter has a poor game he looks to his ankle. "That's what he's been doing ever since I've been at the club, and whenever things aren't going his way and he's not in top form he looks at his ankle. "(But) He's going with Zolly to a specialist in Amsterdam just to get the confirmation that everything is fine now from one of the top specialists in the world."
