Graham Potter optimistic to see Brighton out of the loosing streak

Fri 05 March 2021 | 17:07

Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter insists his side's exhibitions will ultimately transform into positive results.

The Albion have been pulled down to the

Premier League

relegation fight after routs against Crystal Palace and West Brom. 

They were defeated by their traditional adversaries, Palace in spite of having

25 shots

and lost a tumultuous game at the Hawthorns in which they missed two spot-kicks and had Lewis Dunk's free-kick questionably precluded by ref Lee Mason. 

Yet, the 45-year-old Potter realizes they can't bear to feel frustrated about themselves and said:

"It's hard to say, 'we'll play badly and win'.

"It's hard to say that as a coach, you want to try and improve and get better. No matter how we do it, we're all doing the same thing, which is to try to win the game.

"As I understand it in football, there's no right or wrong way of doing it, whether the focus is on the amount of passes, whether it's long ball, whether it's set-plays, the challenges are you've got to make your choice work.

"At the moment we're playing well, but we haven't managed to turn those performances into the points that we need and that's where we have to work.

"That's why football is so great, that's why we love it so much. In most sports the better team wins, but in football the better team doesn't always win.

"You also know the fundamentals in the games are you have to score one more goal than the opponent and we haven't done that for the last three matches.

"I don't think you can say, 'if we do this, then our results are going to improve'. It's not as simple as that, we have to try our way and work with the players, and do something we believe in."

The Seagulls will face

Leicester City

on Saturday night, though they will be without full-back Tariq Lamptey due to an injury.
