ALBION boss Graham Potter was full of praise for striker Neal Maupay after his dramatic equaliser against West Ham.

The Frenchman was goalless in his previous seven appearances for the club, with his last goal coming against Crystal Palace.

The striker has had a frustrating spell in front of goal, against Leeds he was guilty of missing some easier chances and in the match against the Hammers he had spurned a good chance in the opening stages.

Maupay, however, was able to get himself on the scoresheet against the Hammers in the 89th minute of the game with a stunning overhead kick.

Speaking after the game about Maupay, Graham Potter said: "He had a difficult game against Leeds.

"Even though his performance was good, if you miss a chance especially at 0-0 the environment is a bit tough for him.

"He handled it really well, he has responded really well. He was always going to play today, always going to stay on. Really good for him to get the goal.

"Just a good example of how you can go from a villain to a hero. It's a good example for everyone in sport, all the young guys out there, around what it takes to be a professional footballer, especially at the highest level.

"Some days it's your day, some days it isn't. You have to ride the rollercoaster of emotion. He does it well"
