Murphy was dropped to the bench against Leeds last Saturday due to a sore groin and was completely absent from the squad against Brighton. But that didn’t mean he wasn’t front and centre supporting his team.
In a post-match clip of the players returning victorious to their changing room, Murphy was in prime position, joyfully greeting each player and staff member as they went past.
Miguel Almiron also got a special reception as the pair did a secret handshake before hugging.
Longstaff was also present and can be seen grinning in the team’s celebratory photo alongside captain Jamaal Lascelles who is out for the rest of the season due to injury.
It’s currently unknown when Murphy and Longstaff will be making their return to the sqaud, but fans are hopefull it will be before the end of the season.
