ALBION manager Graham Potter is not feeling any extra pressure over the upcoming south-coast derby against Southampton.

Potter and his side travel along the coast on Saturday and will be hoping to win their first match in ten attempts.

The pressure of a derby match could affect some, but Potter is instead excited for the challenge.

When asked if there is any added pressure, Potter told the Argus: "I wouldn't say pressure, no I think it is nice, we have played there twice with no fans, so it will be nice to see a crowd there at St Mary's.

"So we are looking forward to that, I am sure it will add a different dimension to the game, which will help the home team.

"So we have to try and play well, to make it difficult for them, but no, we are looking forward to the match."

The Albion manager is wary of the Saint's way of playing football and is preparing for their attacking style.

He said: "I like Southampton, I like what they do, there is real clarity there, and you can always see what they are trying to do, they are very impressive in how they get the final third.

"I am sure they will get better and better as they adjust to each other.

"Because obviously Danny Ings had moved on, and they have had replacements there, Armstrong has done well for there.

"It is always a tough game, three games in the week, both teams have had a busy schedule, but it is the last game of the week, and we are looking forward to it."
