Graham Potter has praised his Albion braves.

Now he hopes to see more of the same as they chase a first home win of the Premier League campaign.

The Seagulls host Southampton aiming to build on good signs in the 1-1 draw with West Ham last Saturday.

Fans enjoy Potter’s style of being on the front foot with and without the ball.

That means being brave – and not just in possession.

Head coach Potter told The Argus: “I thought we were quite courageous against West Ham when we didn’t have the ball.

“We tried to be pro-active and win the ball back against a team who, you know if you get that wrong with the individual ability West Ham have, then you can be played through.

“Both in and out of possession we were courageous, or we showed bravery if you like.

“Certainly, with the ball I think you’ve got to take responsibility.

“I thought the players did that, tried to do what we asked them to do.

“When I watched it back, I think the same as well.”

Albion could name the XI who kicked off against the Hammers although Aaron Mooy is among the players pushing for a place.

Potter will give those in need of game time an outing on Tuesday when Albion go to Bristol Rovers in the Carabao Cup.

Aaron Connolly, who scored for the under-23s at Leicester last night, also looks likely to feature.

Connolly produced a super finish at the King Power Stadium and second-half goals from Peter Gwargis and Bojan Radulovic completed a 3-0 win.
