Six successive away wins in the Premier League - a Club best

Posted on 2 October 2017  - 12:15

Our victory at Huddersfield on Saturday stretched our sequence of away wins to seven and six in the Premier League - a Club best in the Premier League era.

Harry Kane's double and goals from Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko secured the 4-0 win at the John Smith's Stadium.

That took the current squad's run to six and beyond the previous best of five set in 2013-14.

Last week's win against APOEL in Cyprus made it six successive away wins, the second-best run in all competitions in the Club's history stretching back to joining the Football League in 1908-09.

That run is now up to seven in all competitions with six in the Premier League the second-best sequence now in league football.

The record run remains 10 successive away wins achieved by Bill Nicholson's double-winning greats of 1960-61.

That run was across two seasons - the final two away matches of 1959-60 and the first eight of the double season, 1960-61 - and part of that team's incredible start of 11 straight wins in the old Division One, a mark yet to be toppled in the top flight.

They went on to win the league championship and FA Cup.
