BRIGHTON boss Chris Hughton has revealed Glenn Murray could still be fit for tomorrow’s trip to Burnley.
The striker (pictured) scored a penalty in the 3-1 win over his old team Crystal Palace on Tuesday night. But he was forced off with a shoulder injury after 35 minutes following an awkward fall in a challenge with Eagles defender James Tomkins.
It was first feared Murray, Brighton’s top scorer, would face a long lay-off. He is having tests but Hughton said yesterday: ‘It wasn’t as bad as we thought. We’ll give him every opportunity to be fit for Saturday.
‘He went over on his shoulder but it’s not dislocated or anything — it’s a bit sore but better than what it could have been.’
Winger Jose Izquierdo is set to take part in training today after picking up a knee problem against Palace.
