Brunt admitted Albionâ€™s late-summer recruitment could leave many established first-team figures kicking their heels in the dugout.
â€śIt was frustrating and disappointing not to be playing, especially when youâ€™re sitting and watching the team struggle a little bit,â€ť said Brunt.
â€śBut itâ€™s a squad game nowadays and Iâ€™m sure there will be times this season when it will happen to other people â€“ and it will happen to me again.
â€śWe have invested in a squad and throughout the season you have to rely on everybody.
â€śI was glad to play on Saturday and was pleased with my contribution and hopefully Iâ€™ve done enough to stay in the team for this week against Sunderland.â€ť
