Brighton veteran Glenn Murray hails character shown for West Ham fight-back

Brighton veteran Glenn Murray praised the character shown after their 3-3 draw at West Ham.

The Seagulls frontman netted a well-deserved third goal for the Seagulls following a lengthy VAR check for handball, and Murray admitted he began to doubt the legitimacy of his strike.

He said, “We're leaving the stadium the happier of the two teams. We showed great character to come back from two goals down on a couple of occasions, and we've got to move on from this point with a bit more belief from ourselves.

“There was doubt about my goal for three-and-a-half minutes! You could tell from the celebration that I thought it was a goal at the time I had scored, but when no one celebrated with me and 60,000 people questioned it, then the doubt started to creep into my mind!

“It was given and I felt that we could've gone on to win the game at that point. But it's really difficult in the Premier League and if you give anyone a two-goal advantage, never mind twice, it's going to be an uphill task.

“We knuckled down, stuck together, didn't throw in the towel and came away with a valuable point."
