Albion are continuing to keep a careful eye on Tariq Lamptey.

The right wing-back was arguably hi side’s stand-out performer in the 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa.

But he was removed from the action going in the final stages.

Lamptey missed ten months due to a hamstring problem.

The 79th minutes was his longest outing in almost a year.

Albion boss Graham Potter said: “He sprinted such a lot.

“We know where he has come from and what his history is.

“It was a case of making sure he is available for the rest of the season and we are still building him up to that point.


“I am really happy with how he contributed to the game.”

Albion are preparing for the visit of Leeds on Saturday followed by a trip to West Ham a week on Wednesday.

Enock Mwepu could return for those fixtures.
