Brighton kept their cool during winless run - Murray

6th March 2019, 14:00 by Chris Rivers

Brighton striker Glenn Murray says the players never panicked during their winless run after a much-needed victory over Huddersfield.

The Seagulls hadn't won a Premier League match since the turn of the year before edging out the rock-bottom Terriers 1-0 at the Amex Stadium last Saturday, a result which moved Chris Hughton's side five points clear of the relegation zone.

Murray says that the team's seven-match winless run in the top-flight was put into context by the fact that they didn't feel they were playing badly, claiming they always believed they would turn the situation around given time.

The 35-year-old striker says it was nice to experience a win once more and is now looking forward to Saturday's massive game against rivals and former club Crystal Palace.

Murray told the Argus: "In the changing room we believed it was small margins and we weren't playing that bad in previous games.

"Things were maybe going against us slightly and it was just about keeping our cool and doing what we do. We tried to go back to basics a little bit and stop conceding goals and we did that."

On the Palace game, he added: "It's another big one against a team down there alongside us almost. We could go neck and neck with them if we win, so it should be a good game."
