What a way for Brighton to react on Tuesday but quite how emphatic the win was wasn’t something I was aware of until today to tell the truth.

They say you learn something new everyday and I’ve certainly done that.

Albion’s reaction to the Cardiff defeat with the four-nil win at Bristol City, funnily enough a record equalling win in the top two divisions against the Robins’ rivals Bristol Rovers!

Brighton beat them four-nil back in 1978, yet I’ve rambled on about something besides the point I was looking to make here as with Jamie Murphy speaking highly of the clinical finishing shown by Albion at Ashton Gate.

The former Sheffield United winger told the Official Website.

‘That`s what you want. You don`t want to have five or six shots and see none of them go in. We went there wanting to put the performance right after Saturday, so it was good to get the four goals and keep a clean sheet, so everyone was delighted. I give my all every day in training and in games. Sometimes it`s good to have a rest, but I felt good in the game and managed to get the goal which settled us down.’

Murphy opened the scoring with former Bristol City man Sam Baldock adding the next with Tomer Hemed and an own goal from Mark Little rounding things off.

On a personal note the 26-year-old went onto add he’s keen to add to his goals tally, with him so far having six for the season – which given his background as a youngster as a striker in Scotland is something he should be able to do given chances, also knowing how important it is for all to chip in with goal.

With the season drawing closer to an end, still plenty of points to play for mind, Murphy’s backing us to come right at the right time with him of the opinion the promotion battle will go down to the wire.

‘It`s going to come down to the last two weeks of the season and all we can worry about is ourselves. If we win every week, then we`ll know where we`re going to go.’
