West Brom win, but Ideye misses penalty

Brown Ideye missed his penalty during West Bromwich Albion’s shootout win over Oxford United in the Capital One Cup second-round match on Tuesday.


The Nigerian international played the entire game as West Brom defeated the League Two side  7-6 on penalties after extra-time. It was the striker’s first start for his new club after completing a £10 million move in the summer from Ukrainian club, Dynamo Kyiv.

The game tied 1-1 after regulation time and it went down to the penalties. Ideye, who took West Brom’s second kick, missed from 12 yards out but it didn’t prove costly as his side went on to win.

Unsurprisingly, West Brom manager, Alan Irvine, was disappointed with his team’s performance on the night.


“I’m disappointed with the performance overall, having not been disappointed with the previous two games where I’ve been pleased with what I’ve seen,” Irvine told the club’s official website,

“I must consider how many players needed the game. The over-riding emotion is relief. I’m pleased to get through but disappointed too about some things we did as the game went on, particularly late in the second half.

“I’ve told the players I’m pleased we’re through – but we made very hard work of it, having been in a good position. We have to make sure we stop conceding late goals. It happened last year – and it has to stop,” he said.


West Brom travel Saturday to Liberty Stadium in Wales to take on Swansea City in Day 3 of this season’s Barclays Premier League.
