Shane Duffy has revealed the all-for-one spirit which has sent Albion flying.

But he says they will not get carried away, despite their early-season top-six spot.

The Seagulls were held 0-0 by in-form Arsenal at the Amex - and were the team reflecting on two points which slipped away.

Duffy capped an emotional week by helping keep a third clean sheet of the season and had chances to grab a winner.

He then highlighted the togetherness developed by boss Graham Potter.

Duffy said: “We’re all pushing in the same direction.

“That’s what he has created here. No one blames anyone. We all take it collectively.

“Someone makes a mistake, someone scores a winning goal, it makes no difference. It’s all of us and that’s the way it is.

“No one gets singled out for an unbelievable performance and no one gets hammered for doing something wrong.

“We’re all level-headed at this club. There are no superstars, we’re all really good players and that’s the way we are.

“We bond really well as a team off the pitch as well as on so it’s going in the right direction.”

Potter revealed Duffy’s strong display came at the end of a testing week.


Albion’s head coach said: “I thought it was a physically demanding game for him but he came through it really well. I am delighted for him.

“He had a really tough week. A family member passed away so our thoughts are with his family.

“It has been a sad week for him.”
