Brighton Boss says that Ben White won’t be distracted against his old team.



Graham Potter

is not worried about his player’s feelings as he faces his old club.

Ben White

who joined Brighton on a loan contract is going to play against his old club for the first time since his departure and some would suggest that the young player could be distracted by his sentiments.

“He can be proud of his time there. He helped them and they helped him. It was a perfect loan,”

said Potter


“He speaks highly of everything at Leeds United and is very respectful of how they helped him and progressed his career because it was a fantastic time for him.

“But he is our player now and I am sure he will want to try to get the points against them.”

And about Brighton’s performance in this season he added:

“I think we’ve probably had one game, or a game-and-a-half (this season), where we’ve not been ourselves, Other than that, our performance level has been good.

“But if you don’t get the points there is criticism and pressure, and (people saying) you have to do something to get the wins. We know that. We are in a results business.

“We’ll keep fighting and Wednesday is another bit of information that says we can perform and fight at this level. We have got some qualities. We need to carry on improving.”
