Albion head coach Graham Potter insists they will not underestimate Blackpool in the FA Cup after their ‘traumatic' experience in the previous round against Newport.

The Seagulls were taken to penalties by the League Two side in the third round.

However, Albion managed to go through 4-3 on penalties after some heroics from Jason Steele, who saved four spot kicks.

After the game against County, Potter described the tie as ‘traumatic’.

Blackpool have already knocked out Premier League opposition in West Bromwich Albion to reach the fourth round.

Potter was asked if he thinks their tie at the Amex against the League One side will be less traumatic than against Newport, to which he replied: “I am expecting an equally difficult game.

"We went to Newport with the respect of what they have done in previous years, how well Mike Flynn has done and we have the same respect for Neil Critchley and Blackpool.

“They have earned the right to be here. They have got a really good idea of how they want to play and I have been really impressed with what I have seen.

“It wasn’t luck that got them this far – they use their front players really well, they can also build the play up, they’re a well-coached team.

“The respect we have for teams in the lower leagues is very high.”
