BLUES defender Dan Harding has vowed that the Ipswich Town team will put matters right away from home.
Harding refused to shift the blame for the woeful run of one win in 10 trips and accepted he and his colleagues must shoulder responsibility.
Harding said: “We don't know why we do so well at home and not away. It is something that us as players need to find the answer to, and we need to find it quick. As soon as we can do that we can get to where we want to be in the league.”

Like most people Harding is non-plussed at the extremes of home and away, with seven straight wins on the bounce at Portman Road, but refuses to blame bad luck.
He said: “We want to change things for the supporters. There is no one thing that we can identify, but it is something we need to sort as a team.

“You could say it is unlucky, but if it keeps happening then it is not down to luck. It is down to us on the pitch and it is down to us to put it right.”
Town travel to Burnley tomorrow, not a happy hunting ground with one win and a draw in the past five visits, but remain determined to turn around their fortunes.
Harding said: “We went to Hull believing we could do something and start something away. The lads are really disappointed because it was a game we felt we could come and win. Then we didn't score goals we should and you can't do those things in this league so we have been punished for it.” We started off well because we had belief and that showed for the first 20 minutes, but then we lost the plot and did some silly things.”
Manager Jim Magilton is today hoping to bring in at least one new loan player so he can make changes to the team for the game at Turf Moor.
Meanwhile, Premier League outfits Aston Villa and Everton are both showing an interest in Danny Haynes, according to the national Press.
