Murray, who scored 31 goals to help win promotion last season, had his first game back from a serious knee injury sustained last May in the 3-1 weekend win over West Brom.
And the free-scoring striker was delighted with the rapturous welcome he received from the Selhurst Park faithful as he made his 18-minute second half cameo.
Murray said: "It's been a lot of hard work but it was a great reception from the fans. I'd just like to thank them all for that."
