Goals from Neal Maupay and Davy Propper inside 90 seconds turned around a 1-0 goal deficit to see Graham Potter’s men lead 2-1, before Diogo Jota equalised a minute before the break, but the captain applauded the way the Seagulls turned the game round in such quick fashion.

He said, “We got the two goals back which was a great reaction and exactly the sort of mentality you need in this division. 

“Unfortunately, we let one in and we had to regroup, but it just wasn’t meant to be today. 

“We were still going for the game and that’s the way we are, we want to win as many games as possible and that means pushing for the entire 90 minutes. If we keep going in the manner which we are, then we’ll be okay.”

Potter: A hard-fought point

The defender also reflected on the threats that Sunday’s opposition posed, and singled out one attacker in particular. 

“Their front three are so fast and dynamic and they make it really difficult for you,” he continued. 

“I thought Dan Burn did excellently against Adama Traore today, because he’s so fast and is up and down the field all of the time.

“We didn’t want to get into that sort of game, but they were hard to break down and dangerous on the break.”

Dunk's Wolves reaction

The result followed Thursday’s emphatic 2-1 win away to Arsenal at the Emirates, and the skipper reflected positively on Albion’s three games over the past eight days. 

“At the start of this week you would have definitely taken four points from three tough matches against Liverpool, Arsenal and Wolves. 

“We’re happy with the point because it was an even game that could have gone either way. 

“In the first half I thought it was end-to-end, and that wasn’t really what we wanted. They were good at countering when we made a mistake and they were always a danger. 

“It’s been a tough run; we had an amazing result on Thursday and we’ve backed it up today with another hard-fought point to move on with.”
