Leading scorer Murray took his side 13 points clear at the top of League One by expertly dispatching a low shot across keeper David Lucas in the 64th minute to earn the Seagulls their 10th home win in a row and score his 19th goal of the season.

Irish midfielder Gary Dicker put Brighton ahead with a 12th minute penalty after Craig Noone was brought down by Andy Frampton.

But spirited Swindon levelled midway through the first half thanks to a wonder strike by David Prutton, who scored with a tremendous 25-yard drive into the middle of the goal.

Brighton were awarded their second penalty after 61 minutes when Frampton was adjudged to have pushed Murray but Dicker's poorly-struck spot-kick was saved by Lucas.

Swindon were unlucky moments later when a fierce shot by Mike Grella cannoned back off the underside of the bar. But Murray restored the Seagulls' lead by superbly drilling home across Lucas and into the far corner.

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
