Michael Turner insists that Sheffield Wednesday must improve their away form

The Owls have struggled when they have been away from Hillsborough this season.

Sheffield Wednesday defender Michael Turner has explained that the Owls must do better on their travels if they wish to be considered as genuine promotion contenders, the Sheffield Star reports.

Turner - on loan from Norwich City - believes however that the squad are doing lots of the right things on the road, but he knows that they must significantly add to their two wins away from Hillsborough if they wish to stay in the play-off mix.

"We really need to start winning away from home to kick on, so we will try as hard as we can to turn it around," he said.

"I don't think there is much we need to change. We were disappointed how we went 2-0 down on Saturday at Cardiff but from an attacking point of view I thought we were a threat throughout the game. If we can maintain that then I'm sure we will turn draws into wins."

Wednesday's last win away from home came back in October when they defeated relegation-threatened Rotherham United 2-1, but as Turner alluded to, they showed plenty of fighting spirit at the Cardiff City Stadium at the weekend to fight back from 2-0 down to earn a point. 

And Carlos Carvalhal's side will be hoping that they can build on that result tonight when they face MK Dons. Like Rotherham, the Dons find themselves in the bottom three currently.

With Karl Robinson's men without a win in their last five games, Turner will be hoping Wednesday can capitalise on the opportunity to not only make the Dons' situation more concerning, but, more importantly, end the Owls' near two-month wait for an away victory.
