The former York City man admitted that everyone was very pleased to come away from Priestfield, a difficult place to play, with another three points.
"It was lovely to win, we played well, in the dressing room after the game the manager praised the whole squad, we had to work hard and we deserved the win."
Reading kept another clean sheet, they have now conceded just three goals in the past eight matches which has contributed in no small part to the clubs great run of form.
Summing-up the match Murts added: "We always knew they'd fly at us for the first ten minutes, but we coped well and after that dominated the first half. The second half was scrappier, and we're delighted to get the win."
The Royals right-back was delighted for striker Anthony Rougier who came off the bench to score his second goal of the season and give his side victory.
"It was remarkable! He did well when he came on, he's so strong and he deserved it. He's been missing hte last few weeks and I'm pleased for him because he's a lovely guy," explained Murty speaking to readingfc.co.uk.
