Brighton made it three wins in a row in the Premier League, with a 1-0 win over Wolves at the Amex.

The decisive goal for Brighton came in the 47th minute when Glenn Murray's overhead pass found Bruno and his deflected effort fell to Murray who tapped into an empty net.

Murray brings up his 100th goal for Brighton 

Just two games after scoring his 99th goal for Brighton in the win over West Ham, Murray made it a hundred with a goal during their victory over Wolves.

Murray was fit for the encounter despite being knocked unconscious against Newcastle last week.

He put in a man of the match performance, with his hold up play, passing, runs and obviously scoring the winning goal.

In a day in which the Amex stood to remember legendary commentator, Peter Brackley, they were also on their feet for Murray, who wrote his name into the history books and one of a few players to score a hundred goals for the club.

Wolves wasted good opportunities to score

The visitors were particularly poor in front of goal and wasted a couple of great opportunities to score goals.

Matt Doherty had the first great chance, when he dribbled past a couple of players and only had Mathew Ryan to beat just a few yards out, but ended up putting it a couple of yards wide of the left post.

The second one fell to Diego Jota in the second half when he made a great run and dribbled past four in the Albion box, before firing his effort straight at Ryan.

Wolves went close through Raul Jimenez's overhead kick in the first half and Ruben Neves' effort outside the box in the second half, which Ryan saved well.

Brighton cap off a great October with a win

The Seagulls capped off what has been a great month by winning against Wolves. 

Brighton have won all three of their games this month all by the same score-line of 1-0. It is the first time Albion have won three games consecutively since 1981.

They also got rid of an unwanted record of not having won this season and for nearly a calendar year, by beating Newcastle at St James' Park mid-way through the month.

To pick up nine points from their three games in October and go from 16th place and floating just above the relegation zone, to now 14 points and to mid table in the league shows how impressive a month it has been for Chris Hughton's men.

They will be hoping to continue this form heading into November where they will play three teams around them in Everton and Cardiff City away, as well as Leicester City at home to round off the month.
