Graham Potter has seen a positive response from his squad after Monday night.

Graham Potter admitted he's never seen as dominant a performance as Albion produced against Crystal Palace go unrewarded during his career.

But he is confident Albion can bounce back from Monday’s 2-1 defeat when his team face West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday.

“I am 45-years-old and I can't think of a team being more dominant and losing in all of my career. That's the beauty of football, you can be heavily punished if you don't take your chances,” said Potter.

“We have lost one match, so in that sense we've not got too much to make amends for because we played very well against Crystal Palace. The performance levels of the players were really good.

Potter's West Brom Press Conference

“Now we face West Brom on Saturday, it's the next game and therefore it's the most important. Whenever you play a game and lose you want to get back to winning ways, but we're playing a team that is fighting for the points so it's going to be tough.

“We were distraught on Monday because losing in that manner is painful and hard to take. But as time goes on you start to reflect and focus on the positives. What did the game look like? If you play that game ten times you win it nine times. It was the one time we lost and we have to accept that.”

Potter confirmed that Tariq Lamptey could be involved in the matchday squad, but it's unlikely that fellow defender Adam Webster will be back to full fitness for a number of weeks because of his ankle injury.

“I wouldn't say that Adam’s injury is much more serious than we thought. We were optimistic initially, but then it didn't settle down as quickly as we had hoped,” added Potter.
