Albion have been plunged into a potential Premier League striker crisis after reaching the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Second goalscorer Jurgen Locadia has gone for a scan after he was helped off with a left ankle injury towards the end of the 2-1 win against Derby at the Amex.

Top scorer Glenn Murray was ruled out of the fifth round tie by a calf problem and Florin Andone completes a three-match ban when Albion return to Premier League action at Leicester on February 26.

Manager Chris Hughton said of Locadia: "I haven't seen him afterwards. He's gone to be assessed. It looks sore. I can't say any more than that until it's a little bit clearer over the next couple of days.

"It's a big concern. At this moment we are very hopeful Glenn will be fit for the Leicester game and I hope he (Locadia) is okay. I don't want to jump the gun but we know Florin will miss the Leicester game. It leaves us short in that area."

Hughton is pleased to be through to the last eight for the second year running and Monday evening's draw, although Albion made it hard for themselves after sub Ashley Cole halved Derby's arrears nine minutes from time.

Hughton admitted: "Very nervy at the end. The only disappointment was we made harder work of it at the end than we needed to.

"But I thought for the bulk of the game we were fairly good.

"If I was being critical, we had further opportunities the way that we broke to further increase the lead.

"But the fact we got two goals in that (first half) period is ultimately what got us through."
