Albion boss Graham Potter.

Asked at the video conference with the media what his release was, the boss had a unique answer.

He joked, "I'm on the trampoline. The trampoline is my saviour. The children basically torture me for about eight hours a day to go on the trampoline and then when I'm on it it's actually good fun!

"I'm concerned I'm going to go to A&E and add more problems to the NHS because I've broken the arms of my boys! I'm not what I used to be but I've got a few bounces in my locker and then I'm off after about ten minutes."

Potter and his players, like the majority of the nation, have been working from home during the coronavirus pandemic and the head coach paid tribute to the support he’d been getting both on a personal and professional level.

Potter & Barber press conference

"I'm the same as everybody else, we're here together as a family trying to get through a difficult situation. I'm lucky I've got good people that work with me on a day to day basis, that I've got Dan [Ashworth], Paul [Barber], Tony [Bloom] who I can speak to on a leadership level, so there is support around me from a professional perspective.

“Then on a personal level I'm still connecting with my friends and family pretty much like everybody else, sharing their stories, hearing their problems, how they are dealing with the situation so I'm fortunate."

The head coach was also keen to thank the football club for the support they have given him during the last nine months when he has lost both his parents. 

"The club have been brilliant and I'm very grateful to them. It's been a tough time but I'm lucky that I'm here working for some really good people and a fantastic club,” he added. “I'm proud to be the head coach of this club.”
