Neal Maupay has been told there is no blame on him for a costly last-second handball.

Albion were beaten by a Bruno Fernandes penalty after Harry Maguire’s header flicked off Maupay’s outstretched arm.

Potter said: “There’s no blame, there’s no bad feeling. He will be better for this experience, hopefully we will all be better.

“It has been a very traumatic one in terms of how disappointing it is and how emotional and draining it has been. I would like to think we will get better for it.”

Potter was surprised by the Panenka-style chipped penalty with which Maupay opened the scoring.

He said: “I’ve never seen him take that one before. It’s a good job because I would definitely be saying, ‘Don’t do that’.

"I tend to not look at penalties and Billy (Reid, assistant) told me he had done it.”
