Graham Potter says Albion will miss their home fans as they aim to give Manchester United more bad memories of the Amex.

The Seagulls chase a fourth successive league win at home to the Red Devils and third at their current home when the sides clash tonight (8.15pm).

Potter has dismissed the past results as irrelevant to his team’s bid to end United’s 14-game unbeaten run.

But he would love to have a 30,000-plus full house roaring his team on, as they have in the past two seasons.

Or even the 18,398 who cheered Peter Ward’s winner at the Goldstone in 1982.

Potter said: “I think most teams would have wanted to play at their home grounds from a logistics perspective, an organisation perspective.

“My own personal view is that home advantage is significantly dropped because of the crowd.

“The crowd not being here is the main thing, the main advantage and that would have been nice for us, especially against the top teams.

"The crowd can come and realise that you are the underdog and forgive you for quite a few things because you are playing against the top teams.

“Sometimes the home crowd can get a bit edgy when you are not playing quite as well against the teams around you.

“We’ve lost that but we know that, we know why it is and can’t use it as an excuse. We adapt and do our best.”

Potter believes Albion remain in danger of relegation and does not see past successes against United being any help.

He said: “I’m happy if the Amex is a bogey ground for Manchester United.

“But from our perspective, we can’t rely on that.”

Potter recognises the 2-1 win over Arsenal ten days ago boosted morale which had remaiend in tact despite the long wait for a vovtyity.

He added: “We’ve only lost three games this year but hadn’t won and the story is easier to say that you haven’t won in 2020.

"But still we were aware of the fact, it was nice to win to get that point off your back if you like.

“And, like anything, if you’re winning football matches then things become a little bit easier.

"At the same time, we know we need to carry on, we need to keep fighting. We’re not out of the situation, we’re not out of trouble.
