Potter disappointed with Palace draw

Brighton boss Graham Potter feels his side did more than enough at Crystal Palace to bag all three points on Sunday but emphasised the need to "turn the performances into points" following a 1-1 draw.

Wilfried Zaha gave Crystal Palace the lead from the penalty spot on 19 minutes after Michy Batshuayi had been fouled in the box.

Brighton had started the game brightly and the opener came against the run of play, but they left it very late to grab a point.

It was Alexis MacAllister who scored an excellent late equaliser to send the Seagulls back to the Amex with a well deserved point and there was also a late red card for Lewis Dunk after a high challenge on Gary Cahill.

Potter's side have managed to stop the rot with this performance and ended a run of three straight losses.

It was the performance more than anything else that pleased Potter, who after the game said: "It was a thoroughly deserved point and I thought the game went well from our perspective.

"The first time they entered our box and one of the few times throughout the afternoon they got a penalty. We created some good chances, reduced them to not having many and I was happy for the boys that they got something from the game but I am disappointed for them that we didn’t get all three.

"We have to keep going and turn the performances into more points."

Brighton currently sit in 16th with just four points from their first five Premier League fixtures and they are next in action on Monday 26th October at home to West Brom.

Potter's side are 1.66 for all three points, the Baggies are 5.00 and the draw is 3.90.
