Zac Attwood failed a fitness test ahead of Hastings United's FA Cup third round tie at Middlesbrough.
The striker failed to recover from a hamstring injury so Bailo Camara took his place in attack.
There was also a start for former Albion youth team captain Tom Vickers in midfield ahead of Danny Ellis, who was on the bench.
Liam O'Brien, signed on loan from Barnet on Friday, made his debut in goal with Matt Armstrong-Ford ruled out by a knee injury.
Middlesbrough, 131 places above Hastings in the pyramid, were without 14 players including Marvin Emnes, Jonathan Woodgate and Grant Leadbitter.
