Ideye to return for QPR game?

25 March 2015, 20:03

London - West Brom forward Brown Ideye hopes that he will be ready for his side's next game after the international break - against Queens Park Rangers.

Ideye did not feature in the Baggies' most recent outing - a defeat to Manchester City, after he picked up a knee injury in the previous match against Stoke.

He was also forced to pull out of Nigeria’s squad for the upcoming international friendly games with Uganda and South Africa.

But Ideye is hopeful of making a return to action in time for the encounter against Rangers on April 4.

"I am in rehab now so hopefully I will be better before the QPR game. I just have to work with the doctors and the physios and hopefully things will get better in time," he told the club's official website.

"Somebody kicked me from behind in the Stoke game and since then I've been getting pain. I spoke with the gaffer and said I didn't think I could play so I just have to rest it and get good treatment.

"I thought I could be fit for Nigeria. I thought I could even be fit for the game at Manchester City but the game was still there and I couldn't run so I just had to stay back instead of risking it by going to internationals and coming back.

"I just have to rest. The pain is still there but with the doctors and physios we have doing their best. They should make sure I'm fit for the game."
