Graham Potter said there were "too many positives to mention" after Albion’s draw with Leeds.

The Seagulls were held 0-0 despite dominating much of the play.

Potter highlighted the specific tactical test posed by Leeds and how his team went about breaking them down.

He said: “It was one of those when the ball didn’t go for us. We did everything but score.

“I think we played really well, showed great personality.

“Great courage against a team who make it difficult for you in terms of how they defend.

“Man for man, they leave one of your centre-backs on the ball.

“You have to construct your attacks from there so you need to be patient, you need to find the right moment, which isn’t easy.

"It takes courage but I thought the lads did it really well and created some really good chances.”

Potter had been asked a question specifically about Tariq Lamptey’s threat down the right.

He said: “Tariq contributed to that in a fantastic way, so did Leo (Trossard) on the other side .

“Too many positives to mention to be honest. Really, really happy.”

Potter was pleased with how Lamptey’s team-mates got him the ball in good areas.


And he said sometimes that might require patience and backwards passes which fans did not like to see.

He added: “With Leeds you have to know how to get the ball to your one-v-one players.

“I thought we did that well. We used our centre-backs, used our keeper.

“Sometimes you have to go back to go forward.

“It’s hard for people to understand that, I understand that, but that’s the reality of how you have to attack sometimes against Leeds.”
