Murray Enjoying Survival Challenge

By James Hilsum • 25 February 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray says the team are enjoying the battle for Premier League survival after a convincing 4-1 victory over rivals Swansea City on Saturday.

Murray scored a brace against the Swans to take his tally up to 12 goals in all competitions, and the frontman highlighted the significance of yesterday’s victory.

He said, “It was a huge win and we knew going into the game that if we got three points it would be vital for our task to stay in the Premier League - thankfully we got that.

“Yes we are [enjoying the challenge]. We are enjoying it and the belief throughout the squad is growing as the season goes on.

“The longer the Premier League has gone on, the more we’ve believed in ourselves. There was a lot of us that hadn’t graced the Premier League before this season and the belief has grown throughout the squad.”

Despite the emphatic win, Murray insists there is still plenty of work to be done to ensure the club’s Premier League status for next season, ahead of next week's game against Arsenal at the Amex.

“We’ve got to try and get as many points as possible and not think that we’re almost there. We’ve got to strive for as much as we can get. It’s not over until the fat lady sings.

“It’s great for the fans, but for us it’s three points and that’s it. We can’t get carried away, and I’ve been playing for the gaffer a long time now and he won’t get carried away either. We’ll be doing the same things ahead of the Arsenal game.

“That’s another big game for us down at the Amex. Our form here is picking up a lot, and we will welcome Arsenal down and hopefully get some points out of the game.”
