Relegation-threatened Brighton fought back from two goals down to claim a 3-3 draw against Wolves.

Brighton

have not been in a good form since the start of the current

Premier League

season as they have been struggling to escape the relegation zone. However, in their Saturday match against

Wolves

, they displayed a different mentality. After Aaron Connolly’s early opener for Albion, Wolves scored three goals by Romain Saiss, Dan Burn (Own Goal), and Ruben Neves to make the result 3-1 but Brighton’s second half performance was vastly improved.

Graham Potter

’s team managed to score two goals by Lewis Dunk’s header and a Neal Maupay penalty and avoided another defeat. In a post-match interview, Potter praised his players’ mentality.

“It was tough for us at half-time of course because of the scoreline and how the half went,

“You’re looking for a response, you’re looking for character, and I thought we got it.

“The players were amazing, great spirit, great personality and quality. We hit the bar and pushed and pushed.”

Asked about

Dan Burn

’s performance and his own goal, Potter responded:

“I think Traore, if you look at him, is one of the hardest players in world football to defend against and Dan Burn a couple of years ago was at Wigan in League One,

“Rather than be critical of Dan Burn, we should be proud of him because he puts himself there and he gives his best every day.

“It’s easy to be critical in this world but he’s a fantastic professional, a fantastic person.”
