GRAHAM Potter was happy to see goalkeeper Robert Sanchez bounce back after a mistake against West Ham.

The Spanish goalkeeper allowed a soft goal from Tomas Soucek early in the match against the Hammers, which put Albion into a tricky position for much of the match.

The Czech midfielder flicked a header from a Pablo Fornals corner past Sanchez, who perhaps could have been stronger and make the save or even come and claim the ball.

This clearly affected the keeper as he fumbled the ball on a couple of occasions, but was lucky to avoid further punishment as the Hammers proved wasteful.

The second half saw Sanchez play like a man on a mission to make up for his error.

The 24-year-old made two stunning saves to deny Declan Rice and Michail Antonio from doubling the home sides lead, ultimately allowing for Neal Maupay's wonder goal to earn the team a point.

Potter told the Argus: "I think he is an example of where we are as a team in terms of young players who are adapting to playing in full stadiums and all of that rings.

"The start in terms of conceding the goal can make you feel vulnerable, Sanchez probably didn't have the best first half.

"But I thought second half he showed his quality and made a couple of saves and I am pleased for him that he contributed to us getting a point."
