STRIKER Glenn Murray says Albion’s loss to Sheffield United is “not the end of the world”.

The veteran frontman admitted the performance was a disappointment after the dominant display in the 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace on Monday night.

But he warned that nobody should get carried away just because the Seagulls failed to hit the same heights as against the Eagles when their performance drew a lot of praise from pundits and press alike.

Murray, who came on at half-time as Albion tried to fight back from a goal down, said: “It was disappointing but it is not the end of the season, it is not the end of the world.

“It is just one bad performance where we weren’t maybe quite as good as in previous games.

“But you have to give credit to Sheffield United.”

And Murray, 36, who has had to bide his time for starts believes progress is being made despite setbacks.

He said: “It is amazing how far we have come in such a short space of time.

“I don’t even mean since I came back for my second spell at the club, I mean since the summer.

“The way the gaffer has got this group playing is fantastic and everyone was singing our praises on Monday night.”
