To the outsider, Crystal Palace against Brighton, some 43 miles apart, may appear to one of football's more contrived derbies.

Wilfried Zaha has scored twice as Crystal Palace has beaten local rival Brighton 3-2 and moved six points clear of the English Premier League relegation zone.

In added-on time, Murray squandered a chance from close range after the ball had been flicked into his path, and it proved to be Brighton's final opening as Palace held on for what could prove to be a crucial three points come the end of the season.

Hodgson believes it is equally important that his players do not let the occasion get the better of them.

Murray is the fifth player to score against Crystal Palace in the Premier League having previously played for them in the competition, and the first since Leon McKenzie in April 2005 (for Norwich). It's going to be a very different bench on Saturday to the benches we have had over the last two or three months.

'Why would I say we missed Benteke and his presence?

"Options up front are a nice problem to have".

The Clarets were soon two ahead as Kevin Long notched his first-ever league goal for the club, rising to convert Johann Berg Gudmundsson's deep corner. Zaha is now the league's most prolific penalty victor after he won his fourth penalty of the season against Liverpool last weekend. The club has worked incredibly hard to get here.' However, defeats by Leicester and Everton plus a home draw with Huddersfield last week - in which Dutch midfielder Davy Propper received a red card that keeps him out of tomorrow's game - have led to the odd glance over their shoulder.

Brighton stayed seven points clear of third-to-last Southampton and has a tough run-in, comprising of games against Tottenham, Burnley, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool - all teams in the top seven.

An away win would effectively see Brighton secure a second top-flight season on their biggest rivals' pitch.

'It's not a classic type of derby; it's one that means more to both clubs than to people outside it. The events use footballers past and present to help highlight issues about racism in social society.
