Inferior to Leeds: Three things we learned from Brighton win v QPR
COMMENT by Amir Mir
Football Insider analyses the three talking points as Brighton secure a comfortable 3-0 win against QPR at the Amex Stadium.
Glenn Murray a feared striker on home soil
The 33-year-old has been an integral figure as to why Chris Hughton’s side are possibly heading to the top tier of English football. Murray has scored 15 Championship goals in 23 games, helping his team top the league table in the process. The former Premier League player has shown he is one of the most feared strikers in the league, in particular at home, considering he has scored 13 of his 15 goals on home soil.
Inferior to in-form Leeds
Garry Monk’s side are one of the form teams in the Championship in the past ten games. They have won a possible 24 points from 30 as they sit in a play-off spot. The Seagulls may have topped the table, but they will need to look over their shoulders and keep their eye on the Yorkshire club. Despite a ten point lead from Brighton to the Whites, Monk’s side will still pose a threat as we enter the second half of the campaign.

Chris Hughton showing his managerial qualities
The 58-year-old missed out on a place in England’s top flight last season when Sheffield Wednesday knocked them out of the semi-final’s of the play-offs. However, Hughton has picked his team up and led them to the top of the tree in the Championship. They are ahead of teams such as Newcastle, Norwich and Aston Villa, two of whom spent a considerable amount of money in the summer after relegation.
