Graham Potter hope to see more wing magic Kaoru Mitoma after his exciting cameo at the Amex.

The Japan international showed an ability to ease past opponents when he went on as sub in the 5-1 win over Espanyol.

Old-fashioned wing play has not been a staple of Albion life within Potter’s tactical plan.

But Mitoma appears to offer a potential new dimension.

The Albion boss said: “I think our supporters will like him.

“He has got the ability to go past people one-versus-one and we have seen it already.

“He stands players up and he goes round them, which is not so common.

“That is his quality and what he can do and hopefully we will see him a bit this season.”

Japanese fans have been spotted in the crowd at friendlies against Reading and Espanyol.

And two Japanese reporters were at the Amex on Saturday, waiting long after the final whistle to speak to Mitoma.
