Striker Glenn Murray was again lavishing praise on striking colleague Sam Baldock following the comeback victory over Fulham at the weekend.

Hosting the side at the Amex Stadium for the game, Brighton had to come from a goal behind to take the two one victory and all three point, and Baldock got the leveller before Murray got the winner.

Speaking to the Official Site in his own post game press conference, Murray was once again quick to praise the efforts of his colleague on the day – as obviously Baldock supplied the assist for the winner as well.

‘Sam had a great afternoon and I thought he played the channels well, getting a goal and an assist. It was a great cross and possibly the best of the afternoon. I felt as though the centre-half stepped up as the ball was in motion, but luckily I was onside and it counted. It`s a big three points; obviously it was disappointing to go behind in the game but we showed great character to come back and win against a strong Fulham side.’

With a poor first half admitted by manager Chris Hughton, Murray was also on board with that and he admitted we caused the problem for ourselves with players not on the same page when it came to pressing and sitting on the opposition.

‘We were maybe caught in two minds as to whether to press or to sit, and that allowed them to get in between our lines and control the game. We can`t perform like that and be happy, otherwise we`ll be dropping down the table. It was plain to see that it wasn`t good enough, but we`re not deluded and understood that too. Obviously the gaffer said his piece and we changed it in the second half.’

With Brighton now sitting two points behind Newcastle United in the table, Newcastle lost to Blackburn this weekend, like Hughton, Murray knew we just had to focus on ourselves and not look at others for favours.

‘We`re not bothered about Newcastle. We just concentrate on ourselves, and that`s the same week in week out. It`s boring but that`s the aim of the game and hopefully that will stand us in good stead towards the end of the season.’
