Brighton striker Glenn Murray is enjoying some of his best form.

3 goals in 4 games so far this month makes him one of the leading candidates in the League One player of the month stakes.

Murray has rarely been prolific during his career thus far. He averages a goal every four games in his time at Carlisle, Stockport, Rochdale and now Brighton. But this month he has revelled in playing in a successful side with the Seagulls sitting proudly at the top of the League One table, six points clear of the field.

Technically, he is a very good player. He's not the tallest but he wins his fair share of headers whilst leading the line. He brings other people into play well by holding the ball up, on top of the goalscoring which of course all good strikers are judged by.

He began October with a goal away at Tranmere in a 1-1 draw at Prenton Park. The game wasn't perfect for the striker as he missed two other chances in front of goal, but the goals were to keep coming for him as the month progressed.

Brighton's following game was a hard-fought home draw with Bournemouth. It was a tight affair in which both sides defended stoutly and chances were at a premium.

It took an outstanding goal by Kazenga Lua Lua to break the deadlock while the Cherries equalied in stoppage time via the penalty spot and so Murray failed to find the target.

He got himself back of the scoresheet in the next game, as Brighton were thumping 4-0 winners at The Valley against Charlton. Murray grabbed the second goal of the game which a typical striker's finish, using the poor Addicks defending to his advantage.

Brighton then went on to beat Yeovil 2-0 at the Withdean Stadium, with Murray opening the scoring. Showing that he can score all types of goals, he notched this one with his head after a great cross by Lua Lua.

His all-round performances make him a worthy candidate in League One, and you can vote for Glenn Murray here: VOTE HERE
