Glenn Murray scored twice against his former club as Crystal Palace capitalised on the early sending-off of Brighton's Lewis Dunk to return to the top of the npower Championship table with a 3-0 win at Selhurst Park.

Dunk was dismissed after only seven minutes for a foul on Palace's Wilfried Zaha and although Owen Garvan hit the bar from the resulting free-kick, the Eagles quickly assumed control.

Murray headed home a Yannick Bolasie corner on 37 minutes and added his second from the penalty spot after 54 minutes. Garvan added the third for Palace - also from the spot - after Murray was fouled by Gordon Greer.
