Brighton manager Graham Potter felt his side’s 1-1 draw against West Brom was a “fair result” after Karlen Grant’s late strike cancelled out Jake Livermore’s first half own goal.
Potter, on reflection of the game, said “With the timing of their equaliser we’re obviously disappointed. I thought we was the better team first half and probably could have been more than one goal ahead. I thought they (West Brom) responded well in the second half. They deserved their equaliser; we have to learn from that.”
The Brighton boss also said his side will “take positives” from the team’s first half display.
West Brom manager Slaven Bilic praised his sides second half performance. “That second half performance made me happy and made me proud. If it was 10 more minutes, I had the feeling it was us who would score a second goal.”
Bilic also went onto say “I said to be more brave and to risk a bit more in their box. Show determination. We passed so many good balls in the second half in these pockets that was hurting them. The whole package beyond the point makes it a very good result for us.”
