Watford manager Sean Dyche praises "talented" striker Sean Murray.

Watford manager Sean Dyche has heaped praise upon young striker Sean Murray.

The 18-year-old scored a 25-yard free kick after just eight minutes in the Hornets' 2-2 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday night to take his goal tally to six in his last 12 games.

"He's a very talented young man who is enjoying his football which we have given him the freedom to do," said Dyche.

"He's got a nice manner about him, he works very hard and when you throw in his talent it's a nice mixture.

"We played to win in the first half. To go two up at Brighton, with their home record, and make them play it long at times is very pleasing."

The Irish striker recently picked up the young player of the month award for March.
