West Bromwich Albion record signing, Brown Ideye has been urged by the club’s manager, Tony Pulis to retain a positive state of mind as he continues his search for a run of goalscoring form.
The Super Eagles striker, Ideye has just scored once in the Premier League this season having netted a consolation in last month’s game against Manchester City.

However, Tony Pulis believes the former Dynamo Kyiv hit man is more than
capable of hitting form, sooner rather than later.
“He needs a goal, more than anything else. The boy can’t buy a goal at the moment and that’s what he needs,”Tony Pulis told wba.co.uk
“You have a look at what he did (versus Hull City), the effort and commitment he put in. He worked very hard, especially in the first half hour, he linked play very well and we’re just disappointed he didn’t score.
“Had he done that we would have seen a different player. Confidence is such a big thing for strikers.”
Pulls said he had a chat with Ideye and it’s important for the Nigeria international to get on with it
“I’ve spoken to him a bit. I went back to Jason Puncheon missing a penalty (for Crystal Palace) last year at Tottenham…I said ‘Punch’ get on with it – there are worse things going on in the world,”said Pulis
“People get on with it and carry on. English football is different to other football on the continent. It can take a lot for players to get used to the way football is here.
“You have to give them time and assurance. That doesn’t apply to just Brown but all top players,”Pulis stated.
