Dowie targets away-day points

Hull City's interim manager Iain Dowie has urged his side not to rely on results at home to ensure survival in the Premier League this season.
The Tigers are one point adrift of safety with a handful of games to play, with a crunch clash with Burnley at the KC Stadium next up for Dowie's men.
He told the Hull Daily Mail: "Home form is always vital, but we have got to go away and dig out points. We must find a way to win away from home, that will be very important.
"Somewhere at Birmingham or Wigan we have to get a point. You can try all these things about travel or flying, but that's all bunkum at times.
"It's about getting the players out and making sure they play with intensity.
"The best teams go away and dominate games. We have to go to Wigan and Birmingham, understand their strengths, but also play to our strengths.
"I have seen enough spirit and desire and the lads really care about the club. They are prepared to put a shift in and we are capable of getting a few positive results.
"We picked up a great result last week and we have to make sure Burnley are on the wrong end of the result next week."
