GRAHAM POTTER wants Albion to keep cool heads whether they win or lose.

The Seagulls boss believes a measured approach is key to continued progress in the Premier League.

A landmark win at Arsenal last Thursday, followed by a 2-2 draw with high-flying Wolves at the Amex on Sunday, have boosted Albion up the table to 12th.

But Potter has refused to get carried away with those results, nor will he if Albion should lose, but will stick to the principles he and his backroom staff are trying to instil since their summer arrival.

Potter said: “We need to try to keep consistent with how we work.

“As I have said previously, when you win, don’t get too excited about it but understand why you have won and also understand that you need to start again in the next match.

“If you lose, then you need to understand that as well, but don’t allow yourselves to get too down and throw everything out that you have done well.

“You have to try to remain consistent so the result isn’t taking you all over the place.”

He added: “Life is nice when you’re winning, football is easier when you’re winning and you are up there in the table and everybody feels great.

“But that hasn’t happened too often in my career so you have to deal with the setbacks, pressure and, when results are maybe not what you want, then you have to try to improve.

“It’s as simple as that.”

Albion Under-23s’ Senior Cup clash at Burgess Hill was postponed last night due to a waterlogged pitch.
