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.”
