Brighton & Hove Albion head coach Graham Potter knows he can count on the club’s supporters to back the side this coming campaign.

The new boss tackles his first Premier League season as the Seagulls enter their third, and he spoke of the importance of appreciating the journey the club has been on to get to its current point.

He said, "We need to try to create an environment where we are all together, we are all fighting, and the supporters need to see that. We need to give them that as well - they both feed off each other.

"If you can get that positive environment then of course it can help us. What we can never forget at this club is what it has been through to get here and how much we have to fight to keep it and stick together.

"All the feedback I've had from anybody that has been here is that the supporters are really behind the team. They are noisy, they help the team at home, so I'm really looking forward to it."

Potter also spoke of the relationship between the players and the club’s supporters, highlighting it’s importance.

"I always say that it's the most important thing at a football club,” he continued.

"If you can create an environment that is hostile for the opposition, that gives the home team extra, and of course that's what we are all trying to do. It's not a one-way thing, we have to provide something as well.

"That is the good thing about this club. While there has been a fantastic rise recently, people understand how hard it is to get here and that every game in the Premier League is difficult and you can lose.”
