Potter hails his Brighton players for 6-goal Wolves thriller

Brighton boss Graham Potter hailed his players for their 3-3 draw with Wolves.

Having gone in at the break 3-1 down, Albion responded with Neal Maupay adding to Aaron Connolly's first-half goal before Lewis Dunk nodded in the equaliser to ensure the spoils were shared at the Amex.

“I thought the response of the players was amazing," said Potter. “We are disappointed with the goals we conceded of course, but the response in the second half was fantastic.

“There wasn't too much in the first half, it's just the goals affected things so much. We spoke before the game about our lack of goals, so it's nice to get three."

Potter said his half-time team talk acted as a rallying cry and got the response.

“You've got to get the next goal in the game. We kept fighting as we always do and credit to the players, they were fantastic.

“You have got to be satisfied with a point when you're down in a game like that. The spirit and what the players showed was really encouraging, but that was never in doubt for me because they show me they have that all the time.

“You see with the amount of late goals we score that we don't give up. It was nice for them to get something from the game but it's frustrating that we didn't win."
