Ideye fit for Burnley challenge

Brown Ideye says he is okay and will play against Burnley Sunday if the coaches decided to pick him.

After scoring his first goal for the club on Wednesday against Hull City in the League Cup Ideye was taken off injured.

“I do not know how bad it is but I am hoping when I go to the doctors to check, they will tell me it is not that bad,” Ideye told on Thursday morning on his way to get checked.

Later in the day he went to tweeter to send this message to his fans, “Thanks everyone for the love. My injury is not that serious, hopefully I will be fine before the next game. Thanks once again.”

The joy of scoring

Ideye a record signing for the club from Dinamo Kiev for about ten million pounds had failed to score in his first four games for the club- three in the League and one in the Capital One Cup last month before Wednesday’s game against Hull City FC.

“I am happy the goal came when it did and I am sure there will be many more to come after this,” and excited Ideye told

“After I hit the ball I landed awkwardly and thought I had hurt something but thankfully I will be okay for this weekend’s game,”

Ideye adds that there was really no pressure on him to score from the fans but that he did not want it to get to that point.

“There was really no one putting pressure on me, but when you are a striker and you start playing games without scoring there is a kind of pressure that will come but I’m happy I eventually scored in my fifth game for the club and hopefully, more will come and regularly too.”

The win against Tottenham

Ideye describes last Sunday’s win in the League against Tottenham as a great one.

“For one it lifted us off the bottom of the table and secondly it shook away the pressure that was beginning to set in.

“You do not want to start the season at the bottom of the table. That is too much pressure and it is a good thing we won that one.

“We believe many more wins will come after that one at the White Hart Lane.”

West Bromwich Albion are currently 16th on the table with five points, just 2 points ahead of bottom placed side, Newcastle United
