Glenn Murray pleased to be back on the scoresheet

GLENN MURRAY says it was good to get back on the goal trail again on Saturday, and just in time for the play-offs.
The Eagles striker netted his 30th league goal of the season in the 3-2 victory against Peterborough United at Selhurst Park, making him the league's top scorer - one goal ahead of Blackburn Rovers' Jordan Rhodes.
The 29-year-old's penalty was a timely strike, coming just ahead of the play-offs, which pit Murray and his team-mates against his former side - the Eagles' fierce rivals from down the A23, Brighton & Hove Albion.
And Murray said it was important for the Eagles to get the win going into the end of season showdown, while he said that, personally, he was pleased to find the net again after a barren run of eight games without a goal.
He said: "It was good to get back on the scoresheet.
"It is the same for any striker when you go through a drought, you want to get that first goal and go on a run again."
The Eagles star said Palace would take confidence from the final day victory against the Posh into the play-offs, adding that it was good for the team to come through the game.
"It was a topsy-turvy game and I think it was excellent for the neutrals to watch, even if wasn't for us," he said.
"It was important though for us to get the win having been on a bit of a bad run and it was nice to get back to winning ways going into the play-offs."
Meanwhile, Murray was full of praise for Palace captain Mile Jedinak, who pipped him to the Crystal Palace Player of the Year award at the club's awards night yesterday (Tuesday).
He said: "He thoroughly deserved to win the award.
"He is the heartbeat of the team, the driving force and he has been so consistent."
But Murray did not leave empty-handed, winning the Vice President's choice for Player of the Year and the Goal of the Year trophy for his stunning strike against Middlesbrough.
Murray also took his place in the newly-founded Palace 30 Club alongside Andrew Johnson, Ian Wright, Johnny Byrne, Perry Cherrett, Talbert Dawes and Peter Simpson.
And he will be hoping to be celebrating again at Wembley on May 27.
