Ideye has admitted that he has been frustrated by his absence, but is closing in on a return to action after making the bench for his team's 2-2 draw against Manchester United.
He told the club's official website: "It has been disappointing being out because I would love to play. I am back now so I just have to look forward to the games I do play.
"I was a little bit sad about it because I believed getting my first goal was a great thing for me. I just had to start from there but I got injured.
"I just have to move forward right now, give my best in every game and pray that the team continues to do well because if things go well for the team, they will go well for me."
