GLENN Murray insists his former Crystal Palace team-mates will not roll over in the match that could save Albion's Premier League skins.

The Seagulls will be safe if arch rivals Palace avoid defeat at Cardiff on Saturday, prior to their trip to Arsenal the following day.

Even a draw effectively, if not mathematically, will condemn the Welshmen to the drop because of Albion's vastly superior goal difference.

Murray told The Argus: "I don't think Crystal Palace will (roll over). Strikers will want to score goals, defenders will want to keep a clean sheet.

"You work all week towards the game at the end of the week and they won't want to roll over for anyone.

"I know if the shoe was on the other foot and we were playing a game that affected Crystal Palace, we'd want to do a professional job and win the game."

Palace came from behind to inflict a home defeat on Stoke and send them down at the same stage last season when they were all but safe themselves.

Roy Hodgson's away specialists can also still take 11th place off West Ham, which would be worth an extra £2 million in finishing position prize money.

Murray headed over a late chance to seal survival in the 1-1 home draw against Newcastle.

That stretched Albion's miserable league run in 2019 to two wins in 16 and has left them four points above Cardiff with two games to go.

Murray said: "We understand what we are, which is a relatively newly promoted Premier League club. We understand the second season was going to be very difficult.

"We lost key players (Pascal Gross and Jose Izquierdo) through injury, which is difficult to replace at this level.

"As far as we are concerned, we are in it together. We're fighting hard to stay in this league."
