Harry aims for seventh heaven

Harry Redknapp is targeting a seventh away win of the Premier League campaign at Swansea tomorrow.

We travel to the Liberty Stadium for the first time with a fantastic record of six wins in nine matches on the road so far.

That's already just one win behind our best haul for away matches in a season in the Premier League.

We managed seven in 1993-94, 1995-96, 2009-10 and last season but Harry knows we're in for a test to equal that mark in Wales.

Swansea have a fine home record of just one defeat - to Manchester United - in nine matches so far and beat QPR last time out.

"We've done brilliantly and this is another game we have to win, but it won't be easy," said Harry.

"I watched them play United the other week and that was a tight game.

"Swansea are not an easy side to beat, they are difficult at home. They play some good stuff, pass it from the back, keep the ball and move.

"But we have been to all these kind of places this season - Blackburn, Wigan, Wolves, Norwich - and we've managed to win. The only slip-up was Stoke.

"Our record of winning matches away has been fantastic really.

"They are all tough games but we've won them and that's what we have to do on Saturday."
