Striker Glenn Murray has reflected on a perfect week as Brighton picked up a third straight victory in seven days on Friday evening.

Travelling to Loftus Road for the game against Queens Park Rangers, Murray was joined on the scoresheet by Sebastien Pocognoli to secure a two one victory and it built on earlier victories over Birmingham City and Blackburn Rovers as we keep the pressure on Newcastle in the battle for the title.

Speaking to the Official Site in his own post game press conference, a delighted Murray explained.

‘It was at the end of a massive week, and to get nine points from three games was exactly what the doctor ordered. We`ve produced it and we just need to keep ticking over now, on towards Wolves next week. It`s been tough for us, but everyone else has had three games in seven days and for us it was one day less. In a way, it`s a positive because our game is in the bank now, we can watch everyone else and the pressure is on them.’

With a first half effort chalked out, he was of course delighted to eventually get what became his 21st goal of the season.

‘We knocked on the door in the first half, got some good quality crosses in there, but struggled to get on the end of many. Tomer Hemed and I got on the end of one each and we were marginally offside, but thankfully we made the breakthrough in the second half.’

He went on to add.

‘I saw Tomer out on the wing, he played it back to me, I was clean through and thankfully the keeper has gone the wrong way. I had a bit too long to think about it, but thankfully the ball went in and we went on to get the second. Poco scored with a fantastic strike and we waivered a bit afterwards and let one in, but we stayed strong and withstood the onslaught from QPR. The whole ground was really fired up at one stage, but we managed to weather that and came away with three points.’

With three wins to bounce back from the loss, Murray continued to point out that it was about taking each game as it comes and keeping our feet firmly on the ground as the games run out now.

‘We`ve still got a few games to go, it`s going to be difficult but we`re getting there step by step. We`ve got to enjoy this moment, because you can only go up for the first time once.’
