Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray is encouraging his team-mates to swiftly move on from last night’s 4-2 defeat to Fulham, and is eager to put things right on Saturday when Watford visit the Amex Stadium.
Murray struck twice to put Albion 2-0 in front, before four second-half goals made it a night to forget for the Seagulls.
He said, “Looking at the positives, it’s probably one of the best first halves of football we’ve played all season.
“It’s not all bad news, we’ve lost the game in disappointing circumstances, but it’s about putting it to bed as soon as possible and we’ve got an opportunity to do so on Saturday.
“Everyone reacts differently and no-one is more disappointed than me, but I know that you can’t dwell on things in the Premier League.
“It’s about getting on the horse again, and there’s another three points up for grabs.”
The striker felt that the timing of Fulham’s goals proved to be crucial on the night, and explained how the game was only going in one direction after the hosts equalised.
“They scored at key times and I felt the goalkeeper made a very good save from me at 2-2. Goals change games and if that had gone in, then the whole dynamic of the game would’ve changed.
“Unfortunately he made a fantastic save, they had the momentum and we couldn’t get our game going again.” 
The Seagulls frontman scored his ninth and tenth goals of the seasons against the Cottagers, and was pleased to end a run of eight games without scoring.
“It was nice to find the back of the net; I struggled with injuries and a bit of illness over Christmas, so to hit the back of the net was a relief.
“I knew it would come eventually though. In the past, I’ve learned not to worry about a drought because they do end eventually.”
