MURRAY FOCUSED ON HOME DOUBLE HEADER

21 March 2017

The forward is now looking ahead to Albion's first two games in April.


Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray admits Saturday’s result at Leeds United means the international break has not come at an ideal time, but he has already switched his focus to a home double header at the Amex next month.

The Seagulls were edged out 2-0 at Elland Road on Saturday, and Murray insists the aim must now be to get maximum points from the next two games at home to Blackburn Rovers and Birmingham City.

He said: “The really disappointing thing for us is that we’ve got a two-week break on the back of a defeat. It’s one of those games where you want to put it right straight away and it would be good to have a Tuesday night game now.

“But we’ve got to rest and recuperate ahead of the final run-in, going into two big games at the Amex.

“No game is a given at this stage of the season. Lots of teams have got something to play for and even the ones that haven’t got anything to play for may play better with less pressure. There are all sorts of ways to look at it, but we’ve got to be at it 100 per cent if we’re going to pick up two victories.

“We’re still as hungry as ever and our aim is to still try and get into that top two.”

The frontman takes solace from the fact that Albion’s position hasn’t changed after the defeat at Leeds, given promotion rivals Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town also dropped points.

“Maybe it wasn’t our afternoon, but we take heart from the results around us. It’s one less game and we’re in the same position.

“That’s where the more experienced players come in and especially the gaffer, to remind us of that. That’s what it’s all about and it’ll be like that until the very end.”
