MURPHY HOPES BOLTON WIN WILL HELP ALBION KICK ON

21 December 2017

LUKE Murphy believes the win against Bolton will help the Brewers kick on over the rush of games during the festive period.

Albion have four games in 10 days starting at Reading on Saturday coming on the back of that 1-0 win at the Macron Stadium.

The Albion midfielder said: “The win was needed and it was deserved. We have been battling away looking for a win and three points and we got them on Saturday. We have been working our socks off but haven’t had that bit of luck and it has been individual mistakes for everybody, myself included, that has let us down and stopped us getting that win.

“Goals haven’t been coming thick and fast for us and we have been backs to the wall in a few games, so someone like Lloyd producing that bit of magic at Bolton is always welcome.”

Murphy arrived on loan from Leeds in January and has enjoyed his first year with the Brewers.

"It has been good,” he said: “There have been ups and down, but it was never a secret that it wasn’t going to be easy. But the most enjoyable thing is going into games as underdogs and then when you do get the rewards it feels so much better than when you are expected to win all the time.”

Murphy is still under contract at Leeds and will miss the Boxing Day clash at the Pirelli as part of the conditions of his loan deal, so where does he see his future?

He said: “It’s completely out of my hands. I have another year left at Leeds after this, so I would have to speak to people there to see if I’m wanted. But it’s well documented that I have loved my time here and everyone has been unbelievable with me.

“Leeds have had some big changes and there’s only a handful of faces I recognise. They started the season really well, had a bit of a dip but the quality they have, the size of the club, I’m sure they will be successful.”
