  • "These players all need as much match fitness as they can get. You can spend hours on a training ground, but you can't beat a bit of inter-club competition.
    Step up Will Hoskins! The Amex crowd are 'willing' you to make your mark and establish yourself in the first team squad.

    Maximum noise for these next two home games! UTA"

  Albion's penalty woes could be over.

  They have scored from the spot again after Stephen Dobbie's late success from 12 yards at Wolves earlier this month.

  This time it was Will Hoskins in a 1-1 friendly draw against his old club Watford this afternoon.

  Hoskins accepted the responsibility of equalising in the second half of the run-out at Watford's London Colney training ground, even though Dobbie was also in the side.

  Dobbie's conversion at Wolves ended a sequence of four saved penalties out of 11 for Albion, the latest Craig Mackail-Smith's second spot-kick against Leeds at The Amex.

  The Seagulls' line-up against Watford, watched by boss Gus Poyet, also included Inigo Calderon at centre half and midfielders Gary Dicker, Ryan Harley, Matt Sparrow and David.

  The Watford team contained players potentially available for loan as well before Thursday's deadline. Clubs represented by scouts included Brentford and AFC Wimbledon.

  Watford's first half goalscorer was Geoffrey Mujangi Bia, on loan from Belgian club Standard Liege.
