Graham Potter was incredibly proud of his players after a tough week, rounded off with a 1-0 win at Leeds.

Graham Potter said he couldn’t have been prouder of his team a 1-0 victory at Elland Road this afternoon.

Neal Maupay grabbed the only goal of the game as he finished off a superb team move in the first half, and the boss was thrilled with Albion's performance away from home in their third game on the road in six days.

He said, “It's a huge win, to play a third game in six days is an incredible effort from the team and I couldn’t be prouder.

“We played against one of the best teams in Europe during the week and so to then come here and perform like we did means we should be very pleased. 

“We know we are fighting for points and we demonstrated today that we are up for that fight.”

Robert Sanchez kept his second clean sheet of the season as Albion defeated Leeds.

Potter was particularly pleased with his side’s defensive display that saw them record a well-earned clean sheet.

“We were smart in our defensive game, if you open up too much you can make it a match that favours them.

“I would have liked a second goal, but a 1-0 win says a lot about the character of a team, we had to manage the situation and we did that.”
