Away the lads

Chris Hughton has always insisted away form is one of the keys to a successful season - so he's delighted with what he's seen from us on the road so far this time around.

Saturday's win at Wigan was our third in seven games on our travels in the Premiership with three draws and only one defeat.

No team has preserved an unbeaten away record with ourselves, Chelsea, Manchester United, Wigan and Liverpool all losing once.

I think it's so important, reasoned Chris. Even if you are not enjoying the best of seasons, generally home form isn't that bad

"There are very few periods where you have bad home form and by that I mean losing games on the spin.

"If you become a better team away from home and not only get results but win games it's such a confidence boost as a team.

"Certainly if I look at us over the last few seasons our performances have steadily got better and better and it gives everyone a lift."
