Fulham boss Mark Hughes is confident his side will soon end their away day blues after being held at Newcastle.

The stalemate at St James’ Park saw Fulham extend their winless away run to 25 league games.

Hughes admits he is frustrated that Fulham have not been able to turn draws into wins away from Craven Cottage but remains optimistic they will soon resolve their travel sickness.

“We are frustrated by the draws but we view it as progress on the road,” said Hughes. We have taken five draws, I think it is, so that’s an improvement on recent times.

“It’s only a matter of time before we get three points on the road, I can see that in our play.”
