GLENN MURRAY has called for cool heads as Albion slip towards danger.

But the striker admits there is no denying they are in a relegation battle.

The Seagulls were left three points from the drop zone after losing 3-1 to Burnley as other results went against them.

Murray famously called for fans to calm down during a tense moment of the promotion race two years ago after scoring against Blackburn.

He has backed boss Chris Hughton to keep things on an even keel this time.

Asked about the survival battle, Murray told The Argus: “We are in it and there is no point denying it or worrying about it.

“It is about being together and keeping on doing what we are doing.

“I am sure the gaffer won’t change, as he never has in my time here, whether it is close to relegation or promotion.

“He is very level-headed and I’m sure that will continue to be the case.”

Murray praised Clarets keeper Tom Heaton for his trio of fine saves in the first half.

But he said referee Stuart Attwell’s decision not to award a penalty against Jeff Hendrick at 2-0 was a huge call.

He added: “They can be season-defining moments.”
