Adam Webster has been backed to play at “a high level” as he prepares for his next big test.

The Albion defender will face Harry Kane and company when Tottenham visit the Amex tomorrow.

Webster has largely impressed on and off the ball so far for the Seagulls.

But he suffered a nightmare moment last time out at Chelsea when his error led to the hosts going ahead from a penalty.

Albion boss Graham Potter has placed a lot of faith in Webster and says it is being repaid.

Potter said: “He’s a really good lad and he’s settled to the group. When he got his opportunity at Manchester City - not the easiest environment - he did really well.

“We put responsibility for playing out from the back on him and he dealt with that really well and he’s getting better all the time and we are excited to work with him and keep on improving.

“That will define his career and determine what level he plays at. He can play at a high level.

“He needs to be himself and play to his strengths and that is his strength.

“There will be a mistake and that’s more my responsibility, because I’m asking him to do that.

“We have to accept, learn from it and become better.”

Shane Duffy is not among Albion’s defensive options for tomorrow due to a calf injury but Leon Balogun could rejoin the matchday 18 after injury.
