Carl Jenkinson states West Ham should be proud of away record

The on-loan defender has lauded the club’s record on the road this season.

West Ham defender Carl Jenkinson has stated that the team’s away record should be a source of pride, telling the club’s official website that the Hammers will approach future games on the road with confidence as a result.

Slaven Bilic’s men have began the new campaign in impressive fashion and find themselves rubbing shoulders with English football’s top teams after eight Premier League fixtures.

One of the most impressive facets of the Boleyn Ground outfit’s play so far in 2015-16 has been their form on the road, with West Ham recording unlikely wins over Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City all away from home.

The Hammers clawed back a two-goal deficit against Sunderland last time out, with Jenkinson on the mark with his first goal for the club to assist in the comeback and maintain the team’s unbeaten record away from home.

Bilic’s side have away games against local rivals Crystal Palace, Watford and Tottenham coming up in the next month or so, with the on loan Arsenal full-back stating that trips away from Upton Park no longer have any cause for concern.

“It's great, it's a really good away record. It’s something we can proud of and we've got to build on that now,” Jenkinson told the club’s official website.

“We've got some tough games coming up and we've got to in there with confidence, which obviously we've got right now."
