BERAM Kayal has been urged to seize his opportunity for Albion at Tottenham tonight.

The Israeli midfielder makes his first Premier League start for five months at Spurs' new stadium in place of hamstring injury victim Davy Propper.

Kayal has not featured since conceding a late penalty equaliser in the 1-1 home draw against Leicester in November.

He impressed after replacing Propper ten minutes into Saturday's precious 0-0 draw at Wolves.

Hughton told The Argus: "Credit to him. He's not featured as much as he would have liked but it's part and parcel of the game.

"It's about a response and an opportunity when you play. When he came on I thought he did really well.

"Irrespective of anybody playing more or less games than they thought, they are always part of a squad that's fighting.

"The moment somebody thinks that opportunity is not going to come for them, invariably it does and they have got to be ready for it."

Propper faces a scan to determine whether he will be available for the remaining matches against Newcastle, Arsenal and Manchester City.

Hughton said: "We'll assess him. At this moment he's not too bad as regards soreness.

"We will scan him which will give us an assessment of how bad it is.

"We don't think it's a bad one but of course it's very fresh. Certainly as regards the (Spurs) game it's too quick."

Veteran skipper Bruno, who came off in the second half at Wolves, and injury-plagued winger Jose Izquierdo are available.

Hughton said: "Bruno's not too bad, probably just a little bit of a precaution. He was just feeling his thigh. The feeling is it isn't an injury, maybe just that little bit of fatigue, two games in a short period of time.

"So as regards him being fit, then yes he is.

"Credit to Jose, we didn't expect him to complete 90 minutes. The reaction has been good since then so Jose's fine, which is good news."
