The Albion striker applauded his goalscoring team-mate.
Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray praised his striking partner Sam Baldock, after his goal and assist helped the side on their way to a crucial 2-1 victory over Fulham yesterday.
Murray benefitted from Baldock’s terrific cross to score Albion’s second decisive goal of the afternoon, and admits he was unsure at the time whether he was on or offside.
He said, “Sam had a great afternoon and I thought he played the channels well, getting a goal and an assist.
“It was a great cross and possibly the best of the afternoon. I felt as though the centre-half stepped up as the ball was in motion, but luckily I was onside and it counted.
“It’s a big three points; obviously it was disappointing to go behind in the game but we showed great character to come back and win against a strong Fulham side.”

“It’s boring but that’s the aim of the game and hopefully that will stand us in good stead towards the end of the season.”
“We’re not bothered about Newcastle. We just concentrate on ourselves, and that’s the same week in week out.
Saturday’s result means Albion are now only two points behind league leaders Newcastle following their defeat to Blackburn, but Murray took little notice of the scoreline at St James’ Park.
“It was plain to see that it wasn’t good enough, but we’re not deluded and understood that too. Obviously the gaffer [Chris Hughton] said his piece and we changed it in the second half.”
“We can’t perform like that and be happy, otherwise we’ll be dropping down the table.
“We were maybe caught in two minds as to whether to press or to sit, and that allowed them to get in between our lines and control the game.
The Seagulls frontman explained why the performance was not up to scratch in the first half and how this was rectified after the break. Tweets by @OfficialBHAFC
