Glenn Murray says it will be a huge achievement to reach 100 goals for Brighton but admits he'll be happy to see the landmark come and go.

The 35-year-old scored his 99th goal for the club in last night's 1-0 Premier League win at home to West Ham.

It was his fifth goal of the season and speaking afterwards, Murray said: "I'll be happy to see the 100th goal come and go.

"I had a couple of half chances to get the 100th - maybe I should have done better with one - but it wasn't to be tonight.

"It'll be a huge achievement to look back on - to get 100 goals for Brighton - but as soon as it's come and gone, the better, because it will be an extra goal in the tally."

Seagulls manager Chris Hughton was asked whether Murray deserves an England call after the game and said: "All I can do is speak about what Glenn gives us at Brighton.

"Gareth (Southgate) has done a tremendous job with the England team and he'll make any decisions, of course, on the way he wants to go.

"I can only talk about what he gives us. Glenn's been super for me in my time here. For somebody at this stage of the season to have scored five goals - at this club - is a big achievement."
