Brighton hope Glenn Murray able to shoulder the burden again

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.
