BRIGHTON boss Graham Potter has praised the work of his Burnley counterpart Sean Dyche ahead of the sides meeting on the final day of the season.

The Seagulls head to Turf Moor on Sunday having guaranteed their Premier League survival with a goalless draw at Newcastle on Monday.

Sean Dyche’s Clarets have gone seven matches unbeaten to make sure of a top-half finish.

“We know it’ll be a very tough game – you only need to look at Burnley’s points since lockdown, what they’ve achieved over the last few years,” said Potter.

“It’s an amazing job there that Sean has done and I have the utmost respect for him and for what they’ve achieved.”

On Thursday, Brighton completed the signing of Wigan academy graduate Jensen Weir in a move that raised much-needed funds for Latics.

The 18-year-old midfielder featured in four first-team games for Wigan, who have been relegated to League One subject to a successful appeal against the 12-point penalty applied for entering administration.

Speaking of Weir, Potter said: “He’s a young player. he’s got the whole of his future ahead but he’s got a good head on his shoulders, he’s got a good character, he’s got quality on the football pitch.

“We need to give him the right environment here, support him, and hopefully he can make the most out of the potential he has.”

Meanwhile, Potter remained tight-lipped on speculation linking the Seagulls with a move for Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

“I don’t speak about anybody who is not a Brighton player,” he said.
