MURRAY NOMINATED FOR PLAYER OF THE MONTH AWARD

4 May 2017

Murray is part of a four-man shortlist for April's award.


Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray has been nominated for April’s Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month Award.
 
Albion’s top goalscorer scored in each of the club’s opening three victories at the start of the month, as the Seagulls moved closer to promotion after securing nine points in the space of a week.
 
Murray scored the winning goal in a 1-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers at the Amex, before finding the back of the net against Birmingham City a few days later, as Chris Hughton’s side ran out 3-1 winners on home soil.
 
A hat-trick of triumphs were secured when Sebastien Pocognoli’s sublime free kick and another goal from Murray sealed a 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.
 
Murray then turned provider in the following game, as he claimed an assist for Anthony Knockaert’s second goal in Albion’s 2-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.
 
The 33-year-old fired his fourth goal of the month, and 22nd of the season, against Wigan Athletic, as the Seagulls secured promotion to the Premier League with a 2-1 triumph at the Amex.
 
The four-man shortlist includes Burton Albion defender John Brayford, who helped guide the Brewers to Championship safety, Fulham midfielder Stefan Johansen, who scored four goals for the Cottagers, and Reading striker Yann Kermogant, who scored seven goals in as many games.
 
The winner will be announced at 6am on Friday 5th May, with the judging panel comprising of Sky Sports’ EFL pundit Don Goodman; League Managers’ Association director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet football trading manager, Paul Lowery.
