Murray urges Brighton to retain belief

Brighton forward Glenn Murray has urged his side to remain confident as they look to build on their impressive start to the season.

The Seagulls are currently embarking on their first season as a Premier League club and were many pundits' tip to be relegated at the end of the campaign.

However, Chris Hughton's side have adapted well to life in the top flight and currently sit eighth in the standings following a run of one loss in their last six games.

Only league leaders Manchester City have beaten Brighton at the Amex this season and they will be looking to extend that impressive record when they play host to Stoke after the international break, having also won their last two away games, defeating West Ham and Swansea without conceding a goal.

Experienced striker Murray has played an integral role in Brighton's start to the season, netting four goals in his last three appearances, and he has urged his team-mates to maintain their belief.

“We’ve got to go into every game thinking we can get something out of it, otherwise there’s no point in even turning up," Murray told the club website.

“Even though it’s difficult sometimes, you’ve got to be confident and believe you can get something out of it.”

Survival remains Brighton's main priority for the season although they will also have one eye on bettering their highest ever league finish which came when they ended the 1981-82 Division One campaign in 13th place.
