Brighton and Hove Albion welcomed Fulham to the Amex Stadium last weekend for our latest Premier League clash, and whilst the first half was forgettable and we found ourselves two goals down just after the hour mark in the game given the start the newly promoted side put in, we could certainly take the positives come the full-time whistle.

2-0 down saw Glenn Murray come to life and with his clinical finishing on show he made it a one-goal game five minutes after they scored their second, and he seized on a penalty opportunity six minutes from the end of regulation time to secure a point for our efforts.

Three shots on target from six in total, eight aerials won and an overall rating of 8.46 isn’t to be sniffed at for the experienced striker, and once again he proves his worth to us with our higher profile captures over the summer continuing to settle into life at the club.

The positives to take are undoubtedly the spirit of the group to come back from that position as it bodes well for the rest of the season, but equally, we can’t be going two goals down too often at this level so we have to improve on the negatives as well.

The day could’ve gone differently had we not missed the first penalty opportunity though so Chris Hughton will be philosophical about things.
