Graham Potter says there’s more to come from his Albion squad – even without Neal Maupay.
The French striker missed Saturday’s 0-0 home draw with Newcastle before joining Nottingham Forest for around £15million.
Fellow forward Deniz Undav didn’t get further, but Kaoru Mitoma shone as a substitute as the Seagulls chased what would have been a deserved winner.
Head Coach Potter said: “We’re pretty calm, the balance of the team is good.
“The performances were really strong. We still have players on the bench who haven’t played today that we believe in.
“It’s not that we are numberless.
“There are really good opportunities.
“Kaoru hasn’t started a game and you can see what he’s capable of, so he’s pushing just like all the other subs.
“We have to make the right decisions and make the right decisions and we will not do anything that puts the club in a non-positive financial situation.”
Potter said Albion would continue to monitor who is available until the window closes.
He added: “We have a different mix of players but there’s probably no other Danny Welbeck in terms of profile so we might look at that if we look somewhere.
“But we have some good options in terms of attack. Deniz didn’t come on, we still have Evan Ferguson, still Julio (Enciso) who we believe in, young players.
“Leo Trossard played up front as a nine because Kaoru can play wide, so there are a lot of different profiles from an attacking perspective.”
