The second-oldest member of Albion's squad has his 100th league goal.

Now attention turns to the oldest after Glenn Murray's century strike against Crystal Palace.

The next target? Get Bruno to Wembley.

A second FA Cup semi-final for only the second time in the club's history would be fitting in what looks like being the iconic club captain's farewell season with Albion, at least as a player.

The technically accomplished Spanish right-back, a fixture at the Amex since signing in June 2012, has been the perfect accompaniment to the manager they have now.

Bruno (below) and Chris Hughton are role models for decency in an industry where that trait continues to decline.

The Argus: All good things come to an end eventually and all the signs point towards this being the end game.

Hughton has gradually relied less and less on Bruno in the Premier League.

Last season he made 25 appearances. This season he has made just eight starts and has not featured since the defeat at Burnley at the beginning of December.

A hamstring injury at Watford on the opening day did not help. That ruled Bruno out until he returned for a hat-trick of clean sheet wins in October.

The main reason for Bruno's dwindling game time has been the summer signing of Martin Montoya.

Hughton has increasingly turned to Bruno's fellow countryman and former Valencian. Montoya (below) made his 21st league start at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

The Argus: The numbers tell a story and Bruno will be 39 in October. The pattern of one-year playing contracts has probably reached a conclusion, but he still has a big part to play in how the 2018-19 campaign will be assessed.

Albion are tantalisingly close to their best-ever season, as near (five points) to the top ten as the relegation zone with an FA Cup quarter-final against Championship strugglers Millwall at the Den on Sunday.

Bruno has been ever-present on the latter journey, leading the team through the third round at Bournemouth, both fourth round ties against West Brom (below) and the fifth round win at home to Derby County.

The Argus: That is unlikely to change.

There will be much conjecture about the side Hughton selects at Millwall, which is followed by the international break.

Albion do not play again in the Premier League until the end of the month, when they entertain Southampton in a key clash in the relegation dogfight.

Some will argue Hughton should now play his strongest side, with Wembley firmly in view.

The route he will probably opt for is something in-between that and the wholesale changes he made earlier in the competition, as was the case against Derby when Albion had a ten-day break afterwards.

So Bruno, David Button and Dan Burn, for example, are all strong contenders for places at the back.

It is less of an issue than it could have been, since there is no clear definition in a competitive squad between a first and second eleven.

This is highlighted by the fact that Bruno is among 20 players that have made eight or more appearances in the Premier League this season.

The smart money is on 'El Capitan' leading Albion into the Lions' Den with Wembley at stake.

Where or in what guise he spends next season is unclear. Staying with the Seagulls in another capacity - they would love him to stick around - or a return to his homeland are among the possibilities.

It is not beyond the realms of possibility that he could finish up at Wembley holding a trophy. That would be some closing chapter.
