Ideye may miss Palace clash

17 April 2015, 13:14

London - West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis is sweating over the fitness of Nigerian striker Brown Ideye as the Baggies head to his former club Crystal Palace this weekend in the Barclays Premier League, Supersport reports.

Ideye has hit a rich vein of form after his initial struggles at the club that prompted Albion to consider sending him out on loan in the January transfer window, but has been bogged down by a niggling injury which made him withdraw from the Super Eagles' recent friendly matches.

The former Dynamo Kiev attacker suffered the latest injury in training and he is now doubt for the important game at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

“Browny has got a little bit of a knock so we're not sure if he will be fit to start or not. We're hoping that he will be okay," Pulis told a news conference ahead of the game.

Ideye has racked up seven goals in all competitions for West Bromwich Albion this season.

The Baggies are in 14th place on the Barclays Premier League log with 33 points from 32 games this season.
