On Saturday, Brighton and Hove Albion registered a 1-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers to take our fourth win of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

With Wolves’ form this year following promotion from the Championship, it was always going to be a tough game even if their main weakness is in goalscoring – an issue Brighton don’t have when veteran Glenn Murray is in the starting lineup.

The 35-year-old was up to his old tricks in the match and struck in the 48th minute of the game to return all three points, but it was also Murray’s 100th Brighton goal and he takes his place in history.

The game also takes its place in history for another reason, it’s the first time Brighton have won three straight top-flight matches since 1981.

As the above comments more than imply, it’s no surprise to see Murray make his 100th as it had been on the cards – and spoken about – for quite a few weeks now and although he had played down its significance, not only will he have been delighted to attain it, no doubt part of him will be delighted to have got it out the way.
