Albion's top goalscorer reflected on a memorable afternoon.
Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray reflected on a ruthless performance yesterday, as his hat-trick helped to secure an emphatic 5-0 victory over Norwich City at the Amex.
Murray scored his seventh, eighth and ninth goals of the season to overcome the Canaries, and explained that the second of his three strikes was his favourite.
He said, “For the first goal, I felt he let the ball run away from him a bit, so I managed to get my body in there and hit the target.
“I think [the second goal] that was my favourite of the afternoon; it was a great flowing move forward and luckily I was in the right place in the box to finish it off.
“It’s funny actually because I’ve been talking to Jiri [Skalak] all week and he likes to cut in on his right foot, but he crossed that in with his left and it was perfect.
“The last one was just a mistake in their area and it wasn’t their afternoon. We know that they’re much better than what they showed, but we capitalised on their errors and luckily it was a comfortable afternoon.”

Albion’s top scorer praised the support from the Amex crowd on a wonderful afternoon, but is not getting carried away with the result and recognises that plenty of hard games are still to come.
“It was brilliant, but playing at this place in front of a big crowd is the easy part; it’s harder going away to the places you don’t want to go and get a result.
“I’m delighted, but we know it will be a battle when we go to Carrow Road and we’ll be ready for it.”
