Brighton and Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray has sent his thanks to the medical staff at St James’ Park and the Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary Hospital following the head injury he sustained at the weekend against Newcastle United.

After a pretty horrific looking collision in the ninth minute of the game with Newcastle player Federico Fernandez, Murray was left concussed and was replaced by Jurgen Locadia after a significant delay to the game.

Manager Chris Hughton confirmed the concussion in his post-game interviews but stated that scans at the hospital were precautionary only, he was otherwise fine and was set to be released later in the evening – which he ultimately was.

Fans were obviously concerned at the time, and credit to the Newcastle supporters for joining in with clapping him off the pitch as he left, and although I doubt he’ll be in contention for the clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers next weekend owing to concussion protocols now, he should be back for the next one hopefully.

Good to see plenty of other fans taking the time amongst the messages as well.
