Bournemouth

Howe looks forward to Murray reunion

22nd December 2018, 12:09 by Nick Harris

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe says he is looking forward to seeing Brighton's evergreen striker Glenn Murray when the sides meet.

Murray, 35, spent less than a year with the Cherries after joining from Crystal Palace for £4million in September 2015, heading home a late winner to clinch Howe's side a famous 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge three months later.

"Glenn's goal against Chelsea will always live long in the memory," Howe said.

"That game and goal gave us the belief we could win anywhere. He's doing well with Brighton and is still scoring goals at the highest level."

Brighton paid Bournemouth an undisclosed fee in the summer of 2016 to bring Murray back for a second spell at the club and his eight goals so far this season have helped keep Hughton's side nine points above the bottom three.

The Cherries are two points and two places above them in 11th although six defeats in their last seven league games have taken the gloss off their flying start.

"All of our focus right now is on Brighton," Howe said. "We know it's a really big game for us and we're excited by the challenge ahead of us."
