Potter seeks more home comforts

Albion looking to extend unbeaten Amex run to six games against Crystal Palace tonight.

Graham Potter is hoping Albion can back up two impressive Amex performances with another against Crystal Palace tonight.

Albion beat Spurs 1-0 last month to claim their first league win at home since last June, and they would have claimed three more points against Aston Villa last Saturday but for a superb performance by Villa keeper Emi Martinez in the 0-0 draw.

“We got the home win against Tottenham which took a lot of weight off our shoulders but of course you'd like to follow that up,” said Potter.

“We had a strong performance against Aston Villa, and on another day I think we'd win the game, but that's football. The performance was good though, so we need to take that forward.

"It would be nice to win tonight and get three points of course and we'll do our best.”

Chief executive Paul Barber admitted last week that it’s unlikely that fans will be back inside the Amex again this season, but Potter does not believe his team have been affected by their absence more than their rivals.

“I think everybody has been affected. It would be unfair of me to say we had been more or less than anybody else.

"We are all going through the same challenges, the same struggles in terms of not playing in front of our supporters. But we’ve said from the start that we can’t use it as an excuse.

“Everybody misses their supporters, everybody wants them back, but at the right time and when it's safe to do so, we have to make sure we focus on just doing as well as we can.”
