Metadata Plugboard

I wanted to change my titles in my Kobo to look like those of Goodreads. Title (Series Name, #1)

So I got this:
{title} ({series:||}, #{series_index:0>1s||})
Destination field: title

However this stuffs up the books not in series... Is there a way to only apply the above to series only and leave non-series book unchanged?

Help would be much appreciated! Thanks.

Edit: I'm an impatient person >.<
Just played around and got the solution: {title} {series:|(|}{series_index:0>1s|, #|)}
Yay
