Former Carlisle United hitman Glenn Murray admits Brighton aren’t "home and hosed" despite moving five points clear of the Premier League relegation zone.

Murray, from Maryport, started the Seagulls’ 1-0 home win over bottom side Huddersfield as Florin Andone scored the only goal.

Brighton’s victory against Huddersfield on Saturday came after a run of seven league fixtures without a win. The 35-year-old accepts there is still a lot of work for Chris Hughton’s team to do this season with Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace followed by an FA Cup quarter-final tie at Millwall.

"In the changing room, we believed that it was small margins costing us in recent weeks, not that we were playing badly in previous games," said Murray who also played for Barrow and Workington Reds. "Things were going against us slightly and it was just about keeping our cool, going back to basics and stopping conceding goals.

"We did that on Saturday and getting the win is such a great feeling.

"We are not home and hosed yet, there is still a lot to play for.

"It could turn into a really good season for us with the FA Cup as well and that is what we are aiming to do.”
