Brighton's Florin Andone avoids red card then scores crucial goal

Brighton forward Florin Andone will miss the club's next three games after being found guilty of violent conduct in the FA Cup replay at West Brom.

The Romanian, 25, who joined Albion in June from Deportivo La Coruna, misses league games with Burnley and Leicester plus the FA Cup tie against Derby.

Andone appeared to elbow West Brom's Sam Field in Brighton's win at the Hawthorns on Wednesday.

The incident was not seen by match officials but caught on camera.

Andone, who scored Brighton's equaliser, pleaded not guilty to the charge but was found guilty by an Independent Regulatory Commission.

Brighton won thanks to two late goals from Glenn Murray and will host Frank Lampard's Derby in the fifth round.
