Graham Potter voiced his dismay as Brighton and Hove Albion fans booed him and his team off the pitch following a 0-0 draw with Leeds United at the Amex.

Potter’s men dominated the majority of the game, with little spells from Leeds, but Brighton created the majority of chances in the match, solely lacking a clear cut finish. Neal Maupay spurned the best chance of the game, spooning a shot over the bar when he was just six yards out.

Leeds would come into the game late on in the second half, but couldn’t create any clear cut opportunities, and certainly not as many as Brighton had done. At full time, Potter and his team were greeted with a chorus of boo’s around the Amex, a sound the Brighton boss didn’t understand as he shook his head towards the crowd.

"I am a little bit perplexed to the reaction in the crowd at the end because the performance was fantastic against a team that like to dominate possession, like to out-run you – they didn’t do that today.They are entitled to their opinions but I disagree with them completely.We are sitting eighth in the Premier League but maybe I need a history lesson on this football club. (via BBC Sport.)"

The Seagulls had started the season in terrific form winning four of their opening five matches but have since gone on a winless run of eight games, with six of them being draws. In the majority of those games, it has been the same old story, dominate possession, create a number of chances and fail to score.

Potter has since cleared up his reaction to the boo’s following the Leeds game, but it is important to remember his points, and just where Brighton sit in the Premier League.

Next. Could Southampton be in real trouble?. dark

Being ninth after 13 games is no mean feat, and with the January transfer window less than a month away, the answer to their striking problems could be just around the corner.
