MURPHY'S LUCKY STREAK

6 November 2016

The Albion winger has now scored in his last three trips to Ashton Gate.


Brighton & Hove Albion winger Jamie Murphy struck lucky again at Ashton Gate, as his goal helped the side to a 2-0 win over Bristol City last night.

Murphy doubled Albion’s advantage with an effort from the edge of the box, meaning he has now scored on all three of his visits to the stadium.

He said, “As players you have grounds that you like playing at. I’ve played here three times, won three times and scored three times. I look forward to the next game here!

“You want to win games and to have these unbeaten runs, so to go ten games unbeaten in any league is a great achievement.

“We’ve got ten and we don’t want to lose any now. Hopefully we can keep going.”

The Scotsman was pleased with his individual performance against the Robins and is now targeting a sustained run in the team.

He also gave a message of support to Anthony Knockaert who missed yesterday’s game following the death of his father earlier this week.

“I feel we played quite narrow, so I managed to stay wide, get the ball and do what I’m good at. To do that and help the team win feels good.

“You want to play; as a footballer it’s very frustrating being on the bench and you want to be out there helping your team-mates, so I got the opportunity and hopefully did well enough to try and stay in the team.

“He’s [Knockaert] a big part of this team on and off the field and his family come to a lot of the games. The win was definitely for him; he’s gone through a tough time and we’re all here for him.”
