Premier League Match Day 34 - Crystal Palace v Brighton & Hove Albion

Premier League Match Day 34 - Crystal Palace v Brighton & Hove Albion

Spurs were back in the game just before half-time, with a very fortunate goal. Brighton were beaten at Everton and at home to Leicester before being held by Huddersfield in a 1-1 draw last week.

It suggests while Benteke is in the frame to feature tomorrow, it would be a big call for Hodgson to recall a striker who has bagged just two goals this season, particularly with so many other players capable of getting on the scoresheet - not least midfielder and captain Luka Milivojevic, who got into double figures last weekend.

Ian Beach and Gary Breen will be in the commentary box at St. Mary's and we're on todayfm.com from 12.15.

The Seagulls will head up the M23 to face their arch rivals at Selhurst Park with more than just derby honours at stake.

To the outsider, Crystal Palace against Brighton, some 43 miles apart, may appear to one of football's more contrived derbies.

Murray is the fifth player to score against Crystal Palace in the Premier League having previously played for them in the competition, and the first since Leon McKenzie in April 2005 (for Norwich). The Ivory Coast global could be key in this fixture once again.




The central characters were Terry Venables, whose appointment at Selhurst Park in 1976 was quickly followed by his former Tottenham room-mate Alan Mullery taking charge of Brighton.

The second half was less entertaining with no goals added, but the result was enough to take Palace six points clear of the bottom three. When Chris Hughton's side beat Arsenal at the start of March, they were in a great position to secure their Premier League status but what a difference a few weeks makes.

Brighton stayed seven points clear of third-to-last Southampton and has a tough run-in, comprising of games against Tottenham, Burnley, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool - all teams in the top seven. McLoughlin will be looking back his goal against Northern Ireland at Windsor Park in November 1993.

Four minutes later it was the home side who failed to defend from a corner, as Lewis Dunk's header was hooked in by Glenn Murray at the near post to narrow the gap.

Alan will talk about the build up to game in Belfast around the time when there was plenty of tension in the north. McLoughlin was on the bench and it was still 0-0 when he was brought on 20 minutes from time.

"It was uncharacteristic", he told Sky Sports.
