Assistant boss Dave Kemp claims record signing Brown Ideye has a fresh start with Albion after his second goal in as many games inspired a priceless win against Swansea.
Ideye scored one goal and made another as the Baggies beat the Swans 2-0 at The Hawthorns Wednesday night.
And assistant head coach Kemp hailed the impact of the £10m Nigerian.
“He came here with a big fee on his head and great expectations and he’s had to deal with that,” said Kemp. He’s got himself into the team now and he’s playing well. I don’t know what has happened in the past, all we’re concerned about is what he’s going to do in the future.
“He is a new signing as far as we’re concerned because he hadn’t been in the team that much and hopefully now he can stay in and keep doing well. We are pleased he scored and he had a very good game. He made an impact at Burnley and last night he made an impact over the whole 90 minutes.He scored a very good goal and had a big role in the second goal.”
The Baggies climbed to 14th in the Premier League table with Ideye and Saido Berahino netting on 60 and 74 minutes respectively to cap their best display so far under Pulis.
Ideye grabbed his second goal in as many games to take his Premier League tally to three in a season where he has struggled to live up to the big price tag.
