Murray Keen To Continue Away Run

Murray Keen To Continue Away Run

Brighton’s Glenn Murray is looking to continue his fine away scoring form against Chelsea on Wednesday.

The veteran forward has netted five times on the road in 2019, grabbing braces against Fulham and West Brom, as well as opening the scoring in the 2-1 win at Crystal Palace.

Wednesday’s visit to Stamford Bridge represents a chance to extend that run against a defence who have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four outings.

Murray has positive memories of playing at the Bridge, having netted the winner for Bournemouth in a 1-0 win back in 2015-16 and believes he and his team are benefitting from the extra freedom provided on the road.

He told the club’s website: “I’m not sure why they’ve all been away from home, it’s just the way the chances have presented themselves – but as long as they keep coming, I don’t mind whether they’re home or away. “Maybe teams are showing us a bit more respect at the Amex and they’re sitting in, meaning it may be tougher to break them down. “When you go away from home, the opposition have to come out and play which can leave more space in behind with more attacking opportunities.”
