Brighton midfielder Beram Kayal hailed Glenn Murray after the striker reached 100 goals for the club in Saturday's 1-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A resolute defensive performance saw Albion collect all three points thanks to Murray's 48th-minute strike - his sixth of the season.

Asked about Murray and his century of Albion goals afterwards, Kayal said: "Respect. He's a legend, a massive player for us and it's not just about his goals.

"People will talk about the 100 goals but his link-up, his physicality, his running for the team, it's amazing.

"Well done to him. He's a legend for 100 goals but we don't want him to stop here, now for the next 100."
