Brighton striker Murray happy to win Bettinelli battle: We had words

Brighton's two-goal Glenn Murray was happy to win his mental battle with Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli after their 2-2 draw.

His penalty six minutes from time took Murray's Albion tally to 96 goals, and it followed Bettinelli's save from Pascal Gross's penalty in the opening period – the forward looked back on both incidents at the end of the afternoon.

“Myself and the goalkeeper had a few words but that's normal before I stepped up – he saved one in the first half, so he was confident.

“You've just got to concentrate on your own job and where you're going to put it, and thankfully it hit the back of the net for me.

“The best players in the world miss penalties and I missed some last season - to be honest, Pascal's was a good save from the goalkeeper in the first half."
