Graham Potter watches on as his side claim a victory at Turf Moor in Albion's last Premier League away match.

Graham Potter wants his side to pick up where they left off on the road this season.

The Seagulls are unbeaten in their last seven matches away from the Amex stretching back to February ahead of Sunday’s game against Newcastle United at St James’s Park.

Potter said, “We’re on a good run away from home but it’s the start of a new season now and that brings its new challenges.

Aaron Connolly celebrates his winner at Burnley - Albion's most recent away Premier League match.

“It’s important for us to try and get a result because we want to respond to Monday night’s game.

“We’ll be playing against a team who are high in confidence after a good start, so we know it won’t be easy.

“But we had a good performance against Chelsea and then another one against Portsmouth while making some changes which shows we’re in a good place as a group.”

The opening weekend of the new Premier League season saw six away wins which could be because fans are still not allowed inside stadiums.

“Sometimes the home crowd is really with you, sometimes the home crowd get nervous and then it can be a good time to go away from home,” said Potter.

“You can never predict, we just have to get on with it. It's the same for everyone at the moment but Newcastle have got some good players and they've invested well.

“They were worthy winners at West Ham so they will be strong. It's going to be a difficult game."
