ALBION could unleash record buy Jurgen Locadia at Stoke tomorrow.

But boss Chris Hughton does not care who scores for the Seagulls in the Premier League run-in as long as they stay up.

Locadia’s recovery from a hamstring injury means Hughton can for the first time select from the £14 million Dutchman, in-form Glenn Murray and Leo Ulloa following his return from Leicester on loan.

He also has Sam Baldock and Tomer Hemed as back-up in the strengthened strike force.

Hughton said: “I am yet to make final decisions. It’s just good to have him (Locadia) in the squad. As with all players, some take that little bit longer to settle in.

“It’s something we knew and we accept that we took him injured, but it would have been good to have had a good few weeks of training under his belt where we could assess him properly or get to know him just that little bit better, 11 v 11 in a competitive game.

“We are still yet to find out things about him, but we have brought him in because he is an offensive player that so far this season at his previous club (PSV Eindhoven) has a good record of scoring goals.

“It’s what he will bring to the team and the options we have. It’s eleven that play, but on a lot of occasions it can be a bench that changes the game.”

Glenn Murray is likely to spearhead the Seagulls’ attack again at the bet365 Stadium, with Locadia on a bench including Ulloa for the third game in succession.

Hughton said: “If you could guarantee me that anybody, or Glenn, can stay in the team and score the goals to make sure we stay in this division then of course I would absolutely take that.

“We brought in the competition we have to give us options but players are going to be disappointed.

“I can’t play them all, and that is something they have to accept - and should gladly accept - if it sees us getting enough goals and points to make sure we’re safe.”
