Palace player exit looks likely

Last updated : 30 September 2014 By Matthew Roche

With 31 goals in the 2012/13 season Glenn Murray has made a name for himself as a prolific striker in the Championship.

Despite making himself a fans favourite at Selhurst Park Murray has struggled to cement a first tam spot at Palace. Murray's lack of first team football has been majorly influenced by factors out of his control.  A lengthy injury and a regular formation of one pressing man up front not to mention tough competition for places has forced the striker to look elsewhere for games.

But Palace's loss has become Nigel Adkins and Reading's gain as the on-loan Crystal Palace man has been firing on all cylinders for the Royals.

‘He’s settled in extremely well and is forming a great partnership with Simon Cox,’ said Adkins. ‘We’ve got threats in the team to go and score goals.’

Murray has given a string of performances that have not only impressed on lookers but earned Reading crucial points. Palace fans would love to see Glenn back at Selhurst Park but it is hard to imagine a situation where the on loan striker would be happy with sitting on the bench given his obvious ability under a different style of football.
