MURRAY DELIGHTED WITH GOALSCORING FORM

20 December 2016

Albion's striker has now found the net in the last two away games.





Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray insists he wasn’t concerned about his lack of away goals before scoring against Blackburn Rovers and Birmingham City, and expressed his satisfaction at playing alongside Solly March.

Albion’s top goalscorer opened the season with 12 goals at the Amex, before stretching his tally to 14 after back-to-back away victories, and Murray is hoping the return of March will lead to more goals.

He told Seagulls Player HD, “If I wasn’t scoring away, and at home, then that would have been a problem. But the goals were coming and I knew it would only be a matter of time until I scored away from home.

“He’s a top quality winger [Solly March]. He doesn’t have to move too far, just a yard or two, to get a cross in and more often than not, it’s a quality cross.

“Solly’s somebody that I’ve been looking forward to playing football with, he’s a very talented, young individual. I can’t catch him in training, put it that way.”

The 33-year-old scored a 95th-minute winner against Birmingham at St Andrew’s on Saturday, and the Seagulls forward highlighted the importance on securing all three points when not playing their best.

“It was a good finish to a bad afternoon. I think we’ll look back in a few months time and realise it was a crucial win.

“It was a difficult afternoon, we found it difficult away at Cardiff as well, when teams sit in at this level, they’re hard to break down.

“We have to give a lot of credit to Birmingham, they’ve had a lot of upheaval this week, but still came out and showed what a good side they are.”

Albion trailed 1-0 until Anthony Knockaert’s equalising goal in the 82nd minute, and Murray was delighted to see his team-mates never give up on securing all three points.

“Once you stop believing in yourself there’s no point in being out there, so you have to keep believing, and fighting to the end and getting wins like that will only help the spirit within the group.

“Even when we were losing 1-0, we sensed they were getting tired in the last 20 minutes. The crowd sensed it, they started dropping a little bit deeper and all of a sudden, our tails were up.

“Anthony [Knockaert] got a great goal and then is was just about nicking a winner before the full-time whistle, and fortunately we did.”
