Brighton striker Glenn Murray says he is ready for a hostile atmosphere when he goes to face Millwall at the New Den in the FA Cup this weekend.

The Seagulls ace says the recent M23 derby against Crystal Palace has given the players something of a taste of what is to come but expects it to be worse against the Lions.

Millwall have just hit some form with a win at Birmingham following a run of defeats so Murray knows it will be a tough encounter and is ready to warn the youngsters in the side what to expect from the crowd.

“I’m sure we’ll sit them down and give them a heads up of what to expect,” said the 35-year-old.

“There’s nowhere more difficult than Selhurst park, when they got their equaliser the fans get right up for it and this is a difficult place.

“It’s going to be similar to that.”
