Vicente's new role
The Albion boss started his Spanish star in a new central attacking berth in Michel Kuipers ’ testimonial last night.
Vicente converted a penalty as the Seagulls were held to a 1-1 draw by top-flight Reading.
Poyet is still searching for a new striker and has Craig Mackail-Smith and Will Hoskins out injured.
He said: “We are trying to get the best from Vicente.
“Until we get the target man, the one who is going to play between the two centre-halves, we are looking for options.
“It doesn’t mean we are always going to play like this but I think he is dangerous in there.”
Poyet added: “We got what we wanted from the game in terms of fitness and a few players had 90 minutes.
“That is what we are looking for.
“The understanding is there for periods.
“We have to maintain it for 90 minutes but that will come.
“I am sure we are better today than we were before the game.”
Wayne Bridge again missed out with a muscular injury but Poyet said he has a 99% chance of playing against Crawley on Friday.
