Laws anxious over away form

Manager Brian Laws felt that luck was against his Burnley side as their away-day misery continued with a 3-0 defeat at Fulham.

The Clarets have taken just one point from 13 games in the Premier League this season, with Laws admitting that his side need to improve on their travels to avoid relegation.

He commented:"Luck has not been on our side tonight. We did not particularly play well, but I thought their first two goals were offside.

"Our performance was not up to the standard we set on Saturday against West Ham.

"We shot ourselves in the foot with the first goal because we could have cleared our lines, but the second phase of play was offside.

"But if the referee and linesman get it right, it is no goal. One or two heads dropped but we cannot carry anybody.

"The two goals coming in quick succession knocked the stuffing out of us.

"We know our away form is not great, but we will just have to pick ourselves up.

"Psychologically it will start to affect the players. We have to change the mind-set."
