Solly March has been urged to play with freedom – and help Albion up their goals return.

The wideman or midfielder played provider as Neal Maupay brought the house down at the Amex on Saturday.

Jeff Hendrick’s late leveller ensured Burnley held Albion to a frustrating 1-1 draw.

But Potter believes the contribution made by versatile March was a hint of what he should be offering on a more regular basis.

Potter said: “When he has too much time to think, I’m not sure it’s the best for him. We spoke about that.

“I think he’s got talent, he’s a good player, he has got quality.

“He just needs to play with a bit of freedom.

“If you look at the last two or three games, he has played left wing-back, he has played right wing-back and he has played pretty much as an extra midfield player, as a ten.

“That tells you we think he is a football player and that he can play in a lot of positions.

“The key thing for him is he needs to contribute in the final third, the attacking third, more than he has because he has got the quality to do that.

“Obviously it was nice for him to do that (on Saturday) and give support for Neal.

“But I think there is more to come from Solly.”

Albion will check on wing-backs Martin Montoya and Bernardo, who missed the match due to tonsillitis and a thigh injury respectively.
