Murray scored once and grabbed a pair of assists in Saturday's 4-1 win over Sunderland.

Murray opened the scoring just after half time with a far-post header from Yannick Bolasie's deflected cross. The striker then turned provider with a flicked header for Bolasie's first and a pass across the box for the DR Congo international to complete his hat trick. Murray now has six goals for Palace and has linked up incredibly well with the potent attacking threat of Bolasie, Jason Puncheon and Wilfried Zaha from the Palace midfield.

Murray scored from the spot and grabbed an assist in Saturday's 2-1 win against Stoke City.

Murray slammed home the 41st minute penalty after Yannick Bolasie was fouled by Stoke 'keeper Asmir Begovic before flicking on for Wilfried Zaha's first half stoppage time winner. Murray, who only returned from a loan spell at Reading in January, has four goals this season and fantasy managers should take note that he is on penalty duty whilst Mile Jedinak is not in the side.

Murray scored twice and was sent off in Saturday's 3-1 win against West Ham.

Murray opened the scoring in the first half with a header from Jason Puncheon's corner that deflected in off Aaron Cresswell. The striker made it two in the second half when he headed in Puncheon's free kick before he was sent off for a second booking shortly afterwards. Murray has three goals this season yet will find himself back on the bench in the first game after his suspension has expired against QPR on Mar. 14.

Murray scored in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal.

Murray bundled the ball home in injury time following a scramble and came agonisingly close to earning a point after he turned Yannick Bolasie's cross against the post. The striker only got his chance because of an injury to Marouane Chamakh and Yaya Sanogo's ineligibility and his appearances will continue to be sporadic if at all.

Bournemouth are hoping to bring Murray to the club on loan as the work toward promotion, reports the Daily Mail.

Bournemouth are working to join the Premier League, and current sit atop the Championship table on goal difference. Adding Murray would bolster the team's striking options to help them retain that position.

Murray made his first league start of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur.

Murray started as the lone striker and was unlucky not to give Palace a first half lead when his shot was saved by Hugo Lloris. The striker spent the first half of the season on loan at Reading where he scored eight goals in 18 games. Until Palace sign a new striker, new manager Alan Pardew can be expected to use Murray.

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.
