FLORIN Andone could finally have more of a role in Albion's Premier League campaign after a fleeting debut.

The Romanian striker made his first appearance as a late substitute in the 3-1 reverse at Everton.

Andone has suffered from injuries and the form of Glenn Murray since signing in the summer from Deportivo La Coruna.

Albion manager Chris Hughton was trying to bring him on before Richarlison scored his second and Everton's third goal.

Hughton told The Argus: "It would have certainly been better to get him on at 2-1, which was the plan.

"Of course we conceded the third goal. It was good to get him the minutes. He has waited a while.

"He's missed periods through injury since coming to us, but he is fully up to speed now.

"He is fit and motivated now. Probably the difficulty he's had is a centre-forward scoring goals in front of him in Glenn.

"It's always a question of making sure you are fit, putting as much pressure on as you can and making sure we have these good options."
