Bob Booker has vowed not to get carried away by the encouraging start to his reign as Albion caretaker.

Support for Booker to be given the job permanently is strengthening among fans following two wins in two matches with five goals scored and none conceded.

The Seagulls' assistant, handed the job on a temporary basis after Steve Coppell's move to Reading, is keeping his feet firmly on the ground.

"It is exactly how you would want it to be at the moment but I am not going to get carried away," Booker said.

"There is a long way to go. I'm just glad that we have kept that stability.

"Steve Coppell will be pleased that the players have carried on in the same vein with the same attitude."

Booker's next test is Saturday's south coast derby at Bournemouth, then table-topping Albion visit his old club Brentford three days later.

"Touch wood I have travelled quite well in previous games when I've had a little sniff of taking charge, at Huddersfield and Swansea a couple of season ago," he said.

"Bournemouth is going to be a difficult game.

"They are in good form at the moment and they are a good, footballing team, which might suit us.

"The last couple of teams have made it difficult for us by backing off."

Albion are extending the loans of Dean Hammond to Aldershot, Shaun Wilkinson to Havant and Waterlooville and Dan Beck to Bognor, but Carl Wilson-Denis has returned from his spell at Crawley.

"He is contracted to us until the end of October, so he has come back to train with us," Booker said.

"We are looking to top up the others. It's important for them to get games but that doesn't mean they are not wanted here.

"I've made that quite clear to them and with the second month we will have instant recall."

Ben Roberts has resumed light training after spending last week at Lilleshall. The goalkeeper has been sidelined for four weeks by a back problem.
