Murray, only recalled when Florin Andone was injured in the pre-match warm-up, was impressive for the triumph.
Hughton said, “Glenn had been playing recently and we have good competition up there. We had Andone on the bench in our last game and he changed the game with the winning goal.
“Sometimes if it's early in the warm-up, you know you're making a change, but this was very late, almost as the players were coming off.
“If Andone starts, he might have done well and got the winner. But equally if you have to make that change late before the game, Glenn's not a bad option to bring in."
