Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray is happy to keep surprising people, as the Seagulls moved up to eighth with a 1-0 victory over Swansea City yesterday.

Murray scored a fourth goal in his last three games to move the Seagulls up to eighth in the table, as Albion continued their recent impressive form.

He said, “We’ve done very well and got more points than what people thought we would’ve done.

“The positive thing is we’ve done it by learning a lot about the league. A lot of the squad were new to the Premier League, and it’s a slightly different way of football to the Championship

“It’s seven points from the last three games and we’ve got a nice break now until the 20th.

"We’ve got two weeks to prepare for Stoke and get ready to welcome them down to the Amex and try to get three more points on the board.”

The frontman talked through the decisive goal of the game against the Swans, as he kneed the ball home past Lukas Fabianski from close range.

“I just drifted in off the back of Fernandez and to be honest I thought he was going to win the ball.

“He pulled out at the last minute and caught me off guard. I managed sort my knees out and somehow it went in.

“It’s always nice when these things happen. They’re little bonuses and it’s nice to score goals, because it’s my job and I enjoy doing it.”
