Irvine expects tough away days

North End's next outing is away at QPR on Saturday week, followed swiftly by another tough trip to Sheffield Wednesday three days later.

But Irvine's men are in buoyant mood after last weekend's goalless draw at home to West Brom left them in fifth spot in the Championship.

"There is no doubt that it is a tough run of games to come after the break," said Irvine.

"But I keep saying that every game in the Championship is tough, you just have to look at the results; bottom can beat top.

"I don't feel that these games are any harder or any easier."
