Ideye Can Fire Us To Safety, FA Cup Glory

Ideye Can Fire Us To Safety, FA Cup Glory

James Morrison reckons Brown Ideye’s timely turnaround could be the “little trigger” which sparks Albion’s Premier League survival mission and FA Cup crusade.

Ideye’s four goals in a week helped ease the Baggies away from the top flight dropzone and fired them into a quarter final derby clash against Villa in the cup.

A goal in the draw at Burnley, a goal in the win over Swansea and a brace in the victory over West Ham took his tally to six and represented a remarkable transformation for the striker whose days at The Hawthorns seemed numbered as recently as a fortnight ago.

“It’s funny in football because little triggers spark you into form,” said Morrison.

“His performance at Burnley for half an hour set him up nicely. I think the partnership of Saido Berahino and him has come on really strong. It helps us as a team and goals win matches.

“He’s been fantastic with his all round performance and I’m happy for him. It’s been a long time coming.”

Morrison has welcomed the improved atmosphere at The Hawthorns since Tony Pulis took over on New Year’s Day – and he was thrilled by the support of the crowd against West Ham on Saturday.
