Finally, Ideye Scores!!!

Nigerian international, Brown Ideye, was West Brom’s unlikely saviour as they fought back from two down to draw 2-2 at fellow strugglers, Burnley.

The Baggies’ record signing almost left the club in the final hours of the winter transfer window on Monday, but came off the bench at half-time at Turf Moor to head in the equaliser.

Burnley were two up inside 32 minutes through Ashley Barnes and Danny Ings, but Chris Brunt pulled one back just before half-time for Albion
.

It was a first Premier League goal of the season for Brunt, who lost the captain’s armband to deadline-day signing, Darren Fletcher.

The point was enough for Burnley to climb back out of the relegation zone but they desperately needed all three with an extremely tough run of fixtures coming up.

Saido Berahino’s “naughty chair” was parked on the bench as the Baggies striker was dropped following an interview where he spoke of wanting to move on to bigger things, but he was called upon in the 18th minute after an injury to Victor Anichebe.
