Graham Potter has told Albion’s players to be proud of their “amazing” efforts against Manchester United.

But he admitted it felt “very sore” to lose to a last-kick penalty.

Bruno Fernandes fired in after referee Chris Kavanagh checked his screen following the final whistle to spot a handball by Neal Maupay.

Albion had earlier hit the woodwork FIVE times and seen a penalty decision reversed before Solly March scored five minutes into added time.

Potter said: “It was a bit of rollercoaster to say the least. It was a fantastic performance from us.

“We did so much well, played with real spirit, real courage, real quality.

“We are very sore to lose but we have to try to be as philosophical as we can and concentrate on the things we did well and the performance of the team, which was one of a very high level.

“We had such a high when we scored our equaliser because I felt we deserved that.”

Potter was not drawn on the timing of the final United goal.

He said: “I think we felt we scored on the last kick.

“There couldn’t have been that much time left. I don’t know. The referees are responsible for the time. That’s their job.

“From our perspective, we are just very disappointed.”
