Murray has Wembley dream for Brighton
Glenn Murray has backed Brighton to go far in this season's FA Cup after his brace helped them overcome West Brom on Wednesday night.
Experienced forward Murray was introduced as an extra time substitute during the fourth-round replay at The Hawthorns.
The score was 1-1 when the 35-year-old entered the fray, but within 16 minutes he had scored two goals to fire the Seagulls into the fifth round where they will play host to Championship outfit Derby in nine days times.
Murray knows Brighton will be in for another tough match when they take on the Rams, but with the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham having already been knocked out of the competition, he feels there is an opportunity for his side to reach what be their first FA Cup final in 36 years.
"You never know what can happen in this competition, some of the bigger sides are already out but we’ve got enough tough tie next against Derby County – we know what they’re about, they’ve got some good talent and we’ll be wary of them," Murray told the Brighton website.
"This is still a very special competition and it’s always a chance to turn your attention away from the league, going head to head to win a game with nothing to lose."
