New manager Potter has employed his expansive tactics without much fortune this season, with Albion collecting five points from Premier League games.
Asked if Potter should change his tactics, Seagulls goalkeeper Ryan said: "Definitely not. Defensively we have only got one clean sheet and there have been times where we could have done better in avoiding goals, but there have been moments which have influenced the outcome.
"We don't seem to be getting that bit of luck to consolidate positions at the moment. It's hard to find the reasons for that some times.
"It's hard to find why those patterns happen and sometimes you get the rub of the green and sometimes you don't, so you have to just keep working hard until it changes."
