Glenn Murray admitted to a “little bit of disappointment” at Albion’s draw with Southampton.

But he reckons they might look on their share of the spoils more favourably tomorrow.

Murray converted an early penalty but the Seagulls had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

They are one of four teams on 24 points and have moved above Huddersfield into 15th place.

Asked what the team’s post-match emotions were, Murray replied: “Mixed after going away and taking the lead at a relegation candidate and not quite being able to hold on.

“Even though we defended for long periods, it feels like we were set up for doing that and we were comfortable doing that.

“We defended really well.

“I think it was quite a soft goal to concede and probably the over-riding emotion is a little bit of disappointment.

“But I think, in the cold light of day when we wake up in the morning, we will realise it is somebody who is trying to catch us and we kept them at bay.

"We didn't let them overtake us on the night and, away from home, I suppose it's a positive."
