Peter Odemwingie was over the moon after yesterday's 2-0 Black Country derby win over Wolves.
The Nigerian scored the Baggies' second goal with about 15 minutes remaining to tie up the points at The Hawthorns and he was buoyant after proceedings after returning to form for his teammates after being criticised during the lead-up.
"I worry about the team a lot and he (Hodgson) has noticed that I am a sensitive person," he said.
"I do worry about the team and my performance.
"I had to take in stuff that I didn't really like to hear this week from here and there.
"But this situation has also taught me that sometimes you have to let things pass, just concentrate on your work and keep going."
