Cheick Tiote continues his quest for the African Cup Of Nations as along with his Ivory Coast team mates they progressed against co-hosts Equatorial Guinea last night with a comfortable 3-0 win.

An unused substitute against Guinea, Cheick’s team now play the winners of Mali v Gabon (3rd favourites for the tournament) on Wednesday 8 February, with a possible final appearance on Sunday 12 February.

So as expected we’ll not be seeing Tiote back any time soon but seems sure to be available for the home match against Wolves on Saturday 25th February.

Good luck to Cheick and we all hope he returns with a winners medal, now we know we can’t get him back early!
