Brighton & Hove Albion star Glenn Murray insists the team has to improve following their disappointing 2-0 loss to Watford at Vicarage Road.

Brighton put in a piss-poor performance on the day after failing to register a single shot on target for the entire duration of the game.

The seagulls were largely unconvincing away from home last season picking up only 11points all season but with the arrival of new faces in to the club the fans will be hoping for more than that this term.

Only Bernardo and Alireza Jahanbakhsh were the new additions to feature in the game, with the latter coming on as as substitute after Watford were two goals up.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton was also disappointed with his team’s performance especially when the team was made of players from last season.

“It was a rude awakening,” said Murray, according to Independent.

“We will take a bit of time and work over it and see where we can improve.”

“How exactly though?”

“I can’t put my finger on it right now,” he admitted. “We will go away and do our homework. We can only improve.”

Murray was in fine form for the seagulls last season registering 14 goals in the Premier League as the club avoided relegation on their return to the top flight after a 34-year absence.

Brighton will face four of the top six sides from last season in their next six games with Manchester United leading the pack when they visit the Amex stadium on Sunday.
