Survival in sight for Burnley’s George Boyd

Burnley star George Boyd believes the club can all-but guarantee survival if they can end their away day hoodoo over the next four fixtures.

The Clarets are 12th in the Premier League table and 10 points clear of safety but away from home they have picked up just one point from 11 games.

Burnley, who are 15.00 to be relegated, now head into a run of four successive away games and three of those matches are against sides below them in the table, starting with this weekend’s trip to Hull.

The Turf Moor side then travel to Swansea, Liverpool and Sunderland in March and Boyd believes Burnley can ensure they end any lingering relegation fears with a few wins over the course of the next four weeks.

“The pressure is more on them than us, we’ve got that nice gap,” Boyd told the Lancashire Telegraph. “We want to get our away record going.

It’s a great opportunity in the next four games to be safe. We could get our safety in the next three or four games so that’s the main aim.”

Burnley, who have lost their last seven away games in the Premier League, are 3.60 to secure a win at Hull on Saturday.

The Tigers are 2.15 to come out on top as they seek a fifth successive home win in all competitions and a draw can be backed at 3.25.
