The Importance of Glenn Murray

The striker scored a superb goal on Saturday after collecting the ball faced away from goal, wrong-footing the defender, drawing the keeper out and slotting it home with his weaker foot.

Glenn Murray, the player who led Brighton’s League One promotion charge in 2010/11 with 22 goals, is now leading the charge for the Seagulls’ second attempt at automatic promotion from last season.

The Cumbrian-born striker has acquired 6 goals in 10 starts this season and doesn’t look like slowing down. His reign of goalscoring form is no surprise, he managed 4 goals in his first 6 games for the Seagulls after joining from Rochdale in the 2007/08 season. A natural goal scorer.

He was awarded MOTM on Saturday, his second of the season. Brighton fans will be hoping he can repeat his performance tonight against a solid Wolves side.

Whatever happens this season, we all know Glenn Murray will be one of the most crucial parts of the difference between play-offs and top two.
