Manager Tony Pulis said Thursday that Ideye is dealing with a knock and is questionable for West Brom's match versus Stoke.

Brown's status for West Brom's previous match versus Aston Villa was in doubt due to a knee ailment but he was deemed healthy enough to start. There is every chance that this injury is related, and with an extended break under his belt Brown should be good to go this weekend barring any late news.

Ideye (knee) is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's match against Aston Villa.

Ideye twisted his knee Saturday against Southampton, but he apparently passed fit during a late fitness test to warrant his starting spot Tuesday. He'll line up in attack alongside Saido Berahino, who passed fit despite a foot ailment.

Ideye will have a late fitness test on his knee to determine his availability for Tuesday's match against Aston Villa, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Ideye suffered the injury Saturday against Manchester United, and came at a terrible time for West Brom, who also lost Saido Berahino to a foot issue. Both forwards will have late fitness tests, and it's clear the Baggies will need one of them, as Victor Anichebe remains out with a groin injury.

Ideye suffered a knee injury during Saturday's match against Southampton and will be assessed further Sunday to determine the full extent of the issue.

Saido Berahino left the match with a foot injury, which could leave the Baggies very shorthanded for Tuesday's match against Stoke City.

Ideye scored once and got an assist in Wednesday's 2-0 win against Swansea.

Idea opened the scoring in the 60th minute through a placed finish and then turned provider for Saido Berahino a quarter of an hour later. The Nigerian striker has finally found his feet in the Premier League and his blossoming partnership with Berahino makes him a shrewd pick up for fantasy managers.

Ideye scored the equaliser in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Burnley.

Ideye headed home Chris Brunt's corner in the 67th minute to give the visiting side a share of the spoils. The Nigerian striker was widely tipped to be departing during the January transfer window and could become a more regular fixture in the side for the remainder of the season.

Ideye scored a late header in Friday's 3-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Ideye was in the right place at the right time as the ball hit him on the back of the head and dribbled into the net in the 87th minute. It was the 10 million man's first league goal for the club after he came off the bench as a 67th minute replacement for Varela.

Ideye (ankle) has trained all week and should return for Monday's game against Manchester United, manager Alan Irvine told the official club website.

Ideye (ankle) has trained all week and manager Alan Irvine sounded confident that the striker will be fit enough to return. Ideye is West Brom's record signing after arriving in the summer and is yet to score a Premier League goal. His path back into the team is blocked by the in-form Saido Berahino and fantasy managers will only get the chance for points off the bench from the Nigerian forward.
