The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Paul El­li­son

DE­SPITE al­most all of his goals com­ing at Turf Moor this sea­son, Burn­ley striker An­dre Gray doesn’t be­lieve he has an away-day curse.

Ahead of Satur­day’s clash with Ip­swich, the 24-year-old had 15 goals to his name with only one com­ing on the road. His bar­ren away spell mir­rors Burn­ley’s own travel sick­ness with the Clarets win­less from their last five away trips.

But the for­mer Brent­ford and Lu­ton striker isn’t con­cerned and in­stead says he aims to keep plug­ging away, wher­ever he plays.

“It’s a weird one,” he said. “I don’t think there’s any­thing to it. I’m still try­ing as hard and try­ing to score. We prob­a­bly dom­i­nate more at home than we do away, and that might be part of it.

“Peo­ple would be com­plain­ing if I was scor­ing away and not at home, so you can’t win.

“I’m not get­ting pres­sure off my team-mates. As a team we know we need to be bet­ter. That’s all that mat­ters to me. I’ll just keep look­ing at the stats and that will keep me con­fi­dent.”
