Glenn Murray admits he is eyeing up Brighton’s all-time goalscoring record but insists it will not change his approach to the upcoming season.

Former Carlisle United and Workington Reds frontman Murray is on 109 goals and needs 15 more to beat Tommy Cook’s tally of 123.

The Maryport man, however, stressed the need not to think too far ahead, with the Seagulls set to visit Watford next Saturday in their 2019/20 Premier League season opener.

"It’s not on my mind. It’s a landmark I’d be proud to reach, but it’s not on my mind," he told The Argus.

"It’s the first one [goal], the second one and the third one, it’s boring like that but it’s what has got me to 109 now.

“I’ve just got to carry on in that vein. It would mean an awful lot to be the highest goalscorer for the club ever, a current Premier League club, as well.

"Obviously, I have scored goals for them all through the divisions - League One, Championship and Premier League now.

"It will be a great moment, but it’s a long way off at the moment and I won’t really waste much time thinking about it until it’s achieved - if it’s achieved."

Brighton end their pre-season campaign at home to Spanish side Valencia (7pm kick-off) tonight.

Murray began his senior career at Workington and, after a spell in the United States, he joined Barrow before a spell at Carlisle under Paul Simpson.
