Murray headed in a goal Monday during Crystal Palace's 3-0 victory over the Richmond Kickers of USL Pro. The match marked the end of the Eagles US tour and also gave Murray his fourth goal of 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 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.

Murray made his return to the Crystal Palace lineup as a substitute Saturday against West Bromwich Albion. The Eagles' striker came on in the 71st minute for his first game action since injuring his knee last May.

Murray's return is promising for Crystal Palace, as he led the team in goals last season and was a key part to the Eagles earning promotion. However, his fantasy value will remain low until he is able to prove he is healthy enough to remain on the pitch for a substantial amount of time.

Murray, who is recovering from a torn ACL, is expected to return to training next week, Sky Sports reports. Manager Tony Pulis said "Glenn will be another week before he joins in with us for full training. I would say he's about two or three weeks off."

Murray tore his ACL in a game against Brighton back in May, and is finally making his way back to fitness. However, he's still a ways off, and will likely be eased in when he does return.
