Brighton’s long unbeaten home run came to an end against Brentford on Saturday, in a match that was ‘meant’ to get Albion back to winning ways.

Glenn Murray, speaking after the Brentford defeat to end an unbeaten Amex Stadium run since New Years Day, knows no one can be underestimated and has used parent club Bournemouth as an example of what can be achieved.

Brentford was, as said, seen by many as a ‘winnable match’ with that starting a run of matches against them, Huddersfield, Burton and Barnsley that many would feel good points could be secured from.

He told the Argus.

‘I don`t think you can look at anyone and think they are not as good as you, or anything like that. The one you look at is my club Bournemouth. They are doing well in the Premier League, So if Bournemouth can do it anyone can.’

The pressure is on Brighton this season having done so well last season and having such a good Amex record.

He added we’ve got to deal with that pressure in the right way, which he feels we will.

Saturday was a ‘frustrating afternoon’ for Murray and all concerned with such performances from visiting sides something we’ll also have to get used to and find a way to break them down.

We’ll now, not that we have much time, look at the Brentford game with Murray looking for a reaction.

‘There were a few half-chances, little things that maybe didn`t drop our way. It was a frustrating afternoon. Brentford counter-attacked and, to be fair to them, they did it well. “I think we`ve got to get used to that. Clubs are going to come here and sit in, keep the ball at the back and drag us out and hit us on the break. It is difficult to control a team like that. We`ll analyse it, work on it and hopefully we`ll stop it next time.’

Things don’t get any easier against early leaders Huddersfield, who sit nicely at the top of the Championship table.
