Jon Walters: Looking to improve Stoke's away form starting at Fulham

The Potters have won only one of their last 22 away Premier League matches - against West Brom in December - ahead of Saturday's clash at Fulham.

Walters said: "I didn't realise the away record was that bad.

"It would be something nice to improve on. Well, we can only improve on it really.

"But there's no (psychological) barrier. We don't go into any game thinking anything except trying to get a result.

"The Stoke fans spend a lot of money and they are working-class people, so it would be nice to give them a win on the road.

"We've got to keep chipping away at that record and if we can keep our home form going, then we can have a good end to the season."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
