Brighton boss Graham Potter says the club has been a happy place this week after victory over Leeds.

The Seagulls finished 15th last season with 41 points and currently have 37 this term.

Potter said: "We're excited about where we are, there's a feeling of positivity and we want to finish as well as we can. The boys are in good spirits and we will do our best to carry on from last weekend's win over Leeds."

Wolves are next on Sunday and he added: "Wolves have had injuries to key players and they've been through a bit of a transition," added the Seagulls' boss. "Sometimes you get the performances but not the results. Any team in the Premier League would miss Raul Jimenez. They're clear of danger and Nuno Espirito Santo is a fantastic coach."

On Shane Duffy returning from his loan spell with Celtic, Potter concluded: “Losing his father just before the move [last summer] would have had a big impact, as you would expect. He's back and been training with us. We want to get him back up to speed and to make sure he's enjoying his football."
