Potts saw action for the U21s after recovering from a head injury suffered at Arsenal.
He told whufc.com: "That's where I want to be [in the first team]. I've had a few games there this season and that's definitely where my sights are. With a young lad coming in, we've obviously got a good squad as well, there's a lot of competition for places. And you want to keep your match fitness up, so these run-outs and these games are perfect for that matter."
