Neal Maupay is ready to step up for the next Albion penalty – helped by the words of a strike partner.

Glenn Murray has told the Frenchman not to worry about the spot kick which could have secured three points at Leicester City.

Maupay was denied by Kasper Schmeichel with a penalty which would have put the visitors ahead on the quarter-hour.

It was Schmeichel’s third penalty save against Albion in recent seasons and the first spot kick failure of Maupay’s career.

Maupay told The Argus: “I have been practising a lot in training - and usually I am pretty good at it. Apart from Tuesday!

“Cristiano Ronaldo missed pens, Leo Messi missed. It’s not something crazy. I have got really good team-mates around me and they have all been really supportive.

“Glenn Murray, straight after the game, came to me and said, ‘Last time I took a penalty against Schmeichel, he saved it’.

"It’s football. You focus on the next one.”

Schmeichel has saved spot kicks from both Murray and Ashley Barnes in recent years to help Leicester to wins over the Seagulls.

Maupay added: “It was unfortunate. I don’t think my penalty was bad.

This is Albion's penalty record since moving to the Amex

“I think I could have done better and obviously Schmeichel is a really good keeper.

"I will work hard before our next game and practise some penalties and, if there is one, I want it take it to score it.
