Harry's away gaze

Harry Redknapp is focusing on turning around our away form in the Premier League - starting at Hull City tonight.

We kick-off at 8pm at the KC Stadium.

Late goals have cost us on the road in recent weeks. In fact, since beating West Ham on December 8, we've suffered late losses at Newcastle, West Brom, Wigan and Bolton.

Victory would lift us up to 14th in the table and, more importantly, five points clear of the bottom three.

"It's about time we got a good away result," stated Harry before making the trip up to Humberside. "We need to pick up a couple of wins away from home and that in turn takes the pressure off the home games.

"The results have been good for us over the weekend but the league is so tight and we can't rely on that, we have to put a run together now and get ourselves away from the bottom group."

Hull have slipped down the table since their superb start to life in the Premier League and we meet them on a run of eight league games without a win. However, they picked up a goalless draw at Chelsea last time out.

"They've been fantastic this season and Phil Brown's done an amazing job there," added Harry. "They are dangerous opposition and a threat from set-pieces.

"It certainly won't be easy but we've got to go up there, look to play well and get a good result. I feel we have the quality to do that if we go there and play as we're capable of playing."
