Albion's top goalscorer looked back on key moments from the season.

Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray finished the campaign with 23 goals to his name, and the club’s top goalscorer singled out his favourite effort of the season, which came in an eye-catching victory for the Seagulls.
The forward found the back of the net three times against Norwich City at the Amex in October, as Chris Hughton’s team romped to a 5-0 win, and Murray reflected on a memorable day for himself and his team.
He said, “There have been a few that I’ve enjoyed [goals], but the second goal in the hat-trick against Norwich stands out – the header.
“It was a good afternoon for us [Albion running out 5-0 winners to maintain second place in the table].
“Obviously back then they were promotion candidates, with a very strong group of players, but I think we humbled them on the day and that goal [from Jiri Skalak’s pin-point cross] was quite emphatic.”

The 33-year-old also scored a 95th-minute winner against Birmingham City in December, and he felt Albion’s last-gasp victory at St Andrews was crucial, as well as their form at the start of April.
“The Birmingham game was a big moment. It kept the winning run going and also kept us on the tails of Newcastle.
“To score a goal like that, in such dramatic circumstances, was another high point for me. It was great to be able to run and celebrate with our travelling fans, who were fantastic all season.
“I also think the three games after the international break were huge for us. We looked at the remaining fixtures, with some big away games coming up, and felt we had to make the most of the two home fixtures [v Blackburn and Birmingham].
“We managed to do that, and then to win away at QPR, it really felt as though we were hitting form at the right time. Looking back, that was a huge week.”
