Murray agreed to move on loan to Reading until January 2015, reports the official club website.

Murray signed for the Championship side in a bid to get more minutes on the pitch before a return to his parent club in January 2015. The striker spent most of last season sidelined with a cruciate knee ligament injury, playing just 14 times and contributing one goal and two assists. Manager Neil Warnock will keep a close eye on his form before deciding whether to extend the loan in January or not.

Murray entered Saturday’s game against West Ham United as a late substitute.

Murray replaced Stuart O’Keefe in the 83rd minute and had one good chance late-on that was well saved by opposing keeper Adrian. Top-scorer in Palace’s promotion season, Murray missed most of last term with a long-term injury and could enjoy an extended run in the team if Fraizer Campbell continues his profligacy in front of goal.

Murray scored Crystal Palace's first goal of the match in Saturday's 3-2 defeat at the hands of Brentford. The goal gives Murray five on the pre-season.

Murray was Crystal Palace's leading scorer two years ago as he helped the Eagles earn the promotion to the Premier League. However, an injury sustained the playoff final caused him to miss the first 24 matches of the 2013-14 season. He finished the season with one goal in 14 appearances but his impressive 2014 pre-season shows signs that he can return to his scoring ways in a crowded Crystal Palace front line.

Murray picked up an assist when he sent in a through ball that Dwight Gayle converted for the equalizing goal of Monday's 3-3 draw with Liverpool.

Murray was Crystal Palace's leading goal scorer during the 2012-13 season that saw the Eagles earn promotion to the Premier League. However, an injury to his knee during that season's playoffs forced him out of the lineup until February this season. He has played sparingly since returning to the lineup and has collected a goal and an assist in 13 appearances that include three matches in the Starting XI.

Murray converted a penalty kick Sunday to even the match with Swansea City at 1-1.

Murray was Crystal Palace's leading goal scorer last season and was a key part in helping the Eagles gain promotion to the Premier League. He missed the first five months of the season due to a knee injury but has made one start and come off the bench in another two matches. He has attempted fives shots during the last two games, and could provide good fantasy value if he can prove he is able to convert those opportunities.

Murray returned to the Crystal Palace Starting XI for Saturday's match against Manchester United. He managed to play 66 minutes and finished with no goals or assists but did have two shot attempts and one on target.

Murray was Crystal Palace's leading scorer last season and a main reason they earned promotion into the Premier League. However, he has never played in the top division until this season, so it is yet to be seen how he will perform against top level competition.

Murray is doubtful to be included in the Crystal Palace starting XI for Saturday's match against Manchester United, the Croydon Advertiser reports. Palace manager Tony Pulis said he was delighted to have Murray back in the lineup, but he still is not ready for a starting role.

Murray was the Eagles' leading goal scorer last season and will be looking to help the team maintain their spot in the Premier League. If he is able to get more playing time, he could pick up some fantasy value for the rest of the season.
