While Brighton's Premier League survival is all but assured, Potter has urged his side to make things certain this afternoon.

"It's a big incentive, of course," he tells the BBC. "That's what we're excited about, we want to try to win the game and it's an opportunity for us to get three points, but against a good opponent. Nothing is straightforward, we have to fight for them."
