Two-goal Glenn Murray sparks Brighton comeback in draw with Fulham
Glenn Murray scored twice as Brighton & Hove Albion came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Fulham at the AmEx Stadium in the first top-tier meeting between the two teams.
Murray gave Brighton hope in the 67th minute, when he side-footed home moments after Aleksandar Mitrovic looked to have set up a Fulham win with his fourth goal in three games.
Mitrovic has now scored more goals than anyone else in England since signing for Fulham in February but, on this occasion, his joy was short-lived as he then handled in his own area to concede a penalty.
Murray scored the spot kick, taking on the responsibility after Pascal Gross missed from the spot in the first half.
Fulham's Andre Schurrle opened the scoring in the 43rd minute when he got on the end of Jean Michael Seri's pass for his second goal in as many games.
"It was a good game for the neutral, but we're a bit disappointed, although were happy to come away with the draw," Murray said. "To be fair to Fulham, they got control of the game and we showed some character to come back.
"We felt we let ourselves down the last 20 minutes of the first half. You've go nothing to lose at 2-0 down and we threw everything at it."
