Brighton coach Graham Potter acknowledges that his side must demonstrate more substance than style to bring themselves out of the danger of relegation…. For their light-hearted approach to play, Albion have consistently received praise, but remain in troubling shape at the wrong end of the Premier League table.
The Seagulls have won just twice in the season and are sitting two points off the bottom of the table ahead of the home game against Wolves on Saturday. While Potter has consistently expressed satisfaction with the performances of his side, he acknowledges that the only way to strengthen the dangerous role of the club is a rapid improvement in results. “The way the table looks, we are struggling for points to improve our position. That’s the truth,” he said. We’re not pleased with the results we’ve got. In general, the outcomes were pretty decent, so we’re going into the game with some hope, but we need to get results at the same time because that’s what it’s all about. “We are not satisfied with the results we got. The performances have generally been pretty good, so we’re going into the game with some optimism, but at the same time we need to get results because that’s what it’s all about. ” What we need to do is change the state we are in, stay together and accept it. “The poor form of Brighton has led to increasing scrutiny of Potter’s position. A single home league win from 17 games in 2020 has led to growing unrest among fans who have been unable to attend matches due to restrictions on corona virus. Potter, who believes he retains the support of club owner Tony Bloom, insists that his interactions with fans of Albion have been largely positive.” I met a lot of fans because they know what’s going on and where we’re going. I want to promise them that we’re going to fight and change the team every day. It’s been a tough year and I know that not everyone is happy and you’re never going to have a situation where that’s not the case. Most of those I’ve met were amazing and I want to thank them for that. “I meet many fans and they understand what is happening and where we are going.
