Murray Wants Teammates To Move On From Fulham Defeat

Glenn Murray has encouraged his teammates to bounce back from the defeat against Fulham.

The Seagulls faced a 4-2 defeat against the west London side even after taking a two-goal lead in the first half.

Brighton and Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray has asked his teammates to bounce back from the defeat they faced against Fulham by 4-2 even after taking a lead of two goals in the first half. Murray was in brilliant form in the encounter and it was he who scored both the goals to put his side in the driver’s seat but an inspired performance from the Lilywhites saw them lose the encounter. the striker was denied a hat-trick by Sergio Rico, the Fulham goalkeeper, who made an acrobatic save to stop his effort from crossing the line.

Speaking to the club’s official website after the match, the player 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.”

He added, “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.”
