Peter Odemwingie has revealed support from his West Bromwich Albion teammates after his dismissal in defeat to Fulham.

The Nigerian striker was shown a straight red card for lashing out at Fulham's Sascha Riether in the first half after the Baggies had fallen behind at Craven Cottage.

"It made things harder for my team. One man advantage is a big advantage," rued the former Lille and Lokomotiv Moscow man.

"Hopefully when I come back playing I will compensate my team with some good actions and contributions to the next win.

"As a team we need to bounce back. We are a united group and I had encouragement from my team-mates to forget about it. I will be more worried if it happened more often than one or two times in my career."
