Clarke targeting away double

Huddersfield Town captain Peter Clarke is keen to continue their

impressive away record over the next week in back-to-back

fixtures.

The Terriers have won four out of eight games on the road this

term, but face tough clashes against in-form duo Charlton and

Middlesbrough in the space of three days.

However, former Southend defender Clarke says that everyone’s

focus is on Saturday’s trip to The Valley as they refrain from

looking too far ahead.

“Our sole focus is always the next game and that ensures that we

don’t look beyond that at what might be round the corner,” Clarke

told Sky Sports.

“If you start looking too far ahead or setting targets after a

certain amount of games you can lose sight of what is

important.

“The most important thing is always the next game because you

can only affect one game at a time.

“That is the way we have worked in the past and it has served us

quite well so far, so we won’t be changing our ways any time

soon.

“We have done well away from home over the course of the season

to date and were unfortunate not to come back from Cardiff on the

opening day with any points because the performance definitely

warranted a point at least.

“However, since then we’ve done well on our travels, with some

good victories recently and long may it continue.”
