ALBION manager Graham Potter has defended Neal Maupay after his performance against Leeds.

The French striker spurned a few clear chances to give the Seagulls the lead against the Yorkshire side and probably all three points.

However, the game ended goalless and some fans let their frustration known at the end of the game by booing the team off the pitch.

Maupay is the current top scorer at the club this season, having scored four goals in his twelve appearances in the Premier League.

Although, he has not found the back of the net since his equaliser against Crystal Palace in September.

Albion manager Graham Potter has shown his support for the 25-year-old striker ahead of their next match against West Ham.

When asked how Maupay was feeling after the Leeds match, Potter said: "He's good. He knows that on another day he could have scored, but overall his performance level was good.

"He doesn't listen to anything on outside of the football, so he's fine. He wants to help the team, he's looking forward to the game."

Albion have been creating lots of chances in games of late, but have failed at the last hurdle of putting the ball in the net.

Potter said: "I know our players can do more, and that is not a criticism of them, the potential is there for them and I know they can improve.

"It is a process, I am not going to be too critical of them."
