Canley lad on the prospect playing back in Coventry Canley lad Graham Alexander is looking forward to returning to his native Coventry on Saturday with Burnley.Alexander was a City season ticket holder before embarking on his football career which has seen him wins caps for Scotland and he told Pendle Today: "It's a big one for me and my family. "All my family are going on Saturday so I've had to sort out a few tickets. "At the moment it's standing at 13 or 14 but I know I'll get a text saying 'can I have another five tickets' as if I'm loaded with them!"Alexander admitted that his Burnley side do need to start winning away from home and he added: "The Premier League was a hard place to achieve that, but the Championship's just as tough."There are so many good teams in the division and they're so competitive I think the mentality throughout the division is teams think they can win most weeks. That's why you're going to get hard-fought games."But we need to get that away win. "It's something we're not really too worried about in-house, but we know that if we want to be at the top end of the table we've got to pick up more points away from home than we are."It's something we have to put right, but if you can win the majority of your home games and you're unbeaten away you'll be there or thereabouts."But we've still got intentions of catching the top two so we need to get some away wins as well."
