Brighton beats West Brom 3-1 to advance in FA Cup

Ruben Hill

The striker climbed off the bench to score twice in extra time and clinch a 3-1 fourth-round replay win.

Andone did look a trifle lucky to escape without even a yellow card as he appeared to catch Sam Field with his elbow.

The incident occurred in the 27th minute of the FA Cup fourth round replay at the Hawthorns on Wednesday evening, when Andone appeared to purposefully swing his left arm into Field's face, leaving the 20-year-old on the floor.

Andone scored an equaliser for Brighton in extra time.

Leon Balogun hit the bar from an Anthony Knockaert corner and Florin Andone has had several good chances to put the Seagulls in front.

Brighton reached last season's quarter-finals, where they were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United, but with five points between them and the Premier League's relegation zone, Hughton may not need the distraction of an FA Cup run.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton and his Baggies counterpart Darren Moore both claimed after the game that they had not seen the incident.
