Graham Potter wants to help Solly March build on an “amazing” display which deserved more.

The Albion wing-back netted five minutes into added time against Manchester United and was a constant threat.

But there was still time for United to snatch a 3-2 win from a penalty awarded for a Neal Maupay handball right at the end.

Albion are understood to have been looking at left wing-backs during their summer recruitment process and have been linked with a handful of targets.

But March has shone in that role so far.

Head coach Potter said: “I thought he was amazing, to be honest.

“His performance was one I think everybody knows or understands is there from Solly. The challenge is to get it out of him more.

“That’s not necessarily his challenge alone, it’s all of us.

“I thought he was fantastic, that’s why I was so pleased not only with the equalising goal but that it was him scoring.

“He hit the post and contributed to the first goal that we scored.

“I feel for him that he has got nothing to show for that performance.”

Amid his many media commitments, Potter went straight into the changing room to talk to his players after a defeat in which they outplayed United for long periods - and hit the woodwork five times.

He admitted there was little he could say to lift spirits at the time.

But he will urge them to take confidence from their efforts as they start the build-up to their trip to early Prem leaders Everton.

He said: “You feel for them, they are out there and they have put their heart and soul into the game.

“I just said, ‘I’m sorry I can’t make it any better for you’.

“There is nothing we can say. It is what it is.

“It feels unfair and it feels raw and it feels sore but you have just got to remember the level of performance that you showed.”
