Murray: Draw A Fair Result

By Adam Powers • 25 November 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray admitted Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Leicester City was an accurate reflection of the game, as Jamie Vardy’s second-half penalty claimed the visitors a share of the spoils at the Amex.
 
Murray broke the deadlock with a header on his 100th Premier League appearance, but Vardy’s goal from the spot gave Leicester a point, and the Seagulls frontman was frustrated at not being able to build on their first-half lead.
 
He said, “It was tough in the second half - we were much better against 11 men than we were against ten.
 
“They ran us down, they pressed and they were brave. We got sucked into their tempo and let them back in. 
 
“We feel like we should have won, but it’s our own doing. We let Leicester back into the game even though they played with ten men for a long time and, if we assess the game, I think it was a fair result.”

Murray’s strike against Leicester was his seventh of the season, but despite creating a number of second-half chances, the Seagulls had to settle for a draw.
 
“We got into good positions in the second half, we just made wrong decisions in those positions, which let us down.
 
“It would have been nice to get the eighth [goal of the season] as well. But it’s not about that – it's about the points we get, and we need to do a little bit better.”
