Graham Potter said Albion were disappointed not to win at Crystal Palace.

The Seagulls boss cast doubts over the penalty award which left them chasing the game.

But he praised the “personality” which saw them secure a 1-1 draw.

Potter said: “I thought performance wise we started well.

“We were heavily punished by their goal which came from I think their first entry into our box.

“We had maybe a ten-minute period where their tails are up, a bit more confident.

“In the second half we pushed and pushed against a team who are good on the counter-attack, that’s how they play.

“We restricted them to not too much, if anything, and we had chances ourselves.

“I’m really pleased for the players they get something from the game in terms of a reward.

“I thought their personality on the pitch was we tried everything.

“But probably a little bit disappointed we didn’t get three points.”


Asked about the penalty award against Tariq Lamptey, he said: “When I saw it live, I felt was a bit soft, to be honest.

“I think if you are going play devil’s advocate, Tariq’s hands are up a little bit so therefore you give somebody the possibility to throw themselves down or give the referee chance to give a penalty.

“I think we have still got to decide whether it was foul or not.

“I’m not sure. It didn’t look like it was but that’s life.”
