Glenn Murray
Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray has thanked the staff at Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary, after his horror clash of heads at St James’ Park yesterday.
Murray was carried off and taken to hospital for a precautionary scan after a nasty clash of heads with Federico Fernandez during yesterday’s game against Newcastle United.
Murray tweeted his thanks to the hospital, Albion’s medical team and Newcastle United, and told fans he is “feeling much better this morning after yesterday’s events."
Murray, with five goals already this season, is one goal away from his 100th goal, and will be keen to get back to match action as soon as possible.
Manager Chris Hughton, speaking last night, said, “He’s going to be sore for a short while and this week we will do the appropriate things we need to do with him. We are just happy he’s okay.”
Murray was replaced by Jurgen Locadia to applause from both sets of suppporters after 16 minutes, on an afternoon when Albion won 1-0 at St James’s Park thanks to Beram Kayal’s first Premier League goal.
