Albion frontman Glenn Murray expects more support in attack this season – and more chances.

Murray was at times an isolated figure last season but head coach Graham Potter’s pre-season formations have seen a closer link-up in forward areas.

The striker said: “I think that’s something we are trying to work on and become better at and, hopefully, we will.

“It would be nice to have some more support, obviously create more chances, which I believe we will.”

The 35-year-old has been the Seagulls’ top-scorer in the last two seasons, upping his tally in consecutive campaigns.

He would love to improve on his haul again this term.

Murray said: “It would be nice to better it and that is the aim. But whether that happens is another thing.

“It depends how the season goes and it depends on how much I play.

“I’m looking to still score goals and for me nothing has changed from the last two years or the year before, age is just a number. I feel good in myself.”

Murray is just 15 goals short of overtaking the Seagulls’ all-time record of 123 scored by Tommy Cook but insists that milestone is not occupying his thoughts.

He said: “It’s not on my mind. It’s a landmark I’d be proud to reach, but it’s not on my mind.

“It’s the first one (goal), the second one and the third one, it’s boring like that but it is what has got me to 109 now.

“I’ve just got to carry on in that vein. It would mean an awful lot to be the highest goalscorer for the club ever, a current Premier League club as well.

“Obviously I have scored goals for them all through the divisions – League One, Championship and Premier League now.

“It will be a great moment, but it is long way off at the moment and I won’t really waste much time thinking about it until it is achieved - if it is achieved.”
