The dirty dozen

West Ham need one more win away from home to beat the club record number of away wins after equalling the previous best with tonight's 2-0 win at Peterborough.

Sam Allardyce's side have now won ELEVEN times away from home this season - a figure achieved twice before in the 1922/23 and 1957/58 seasons - both of which ended with the Hammers being promoted to the top flight.

However they have already gone one better this term by reaching the historic total in just 39 games. In 1922/23 United's 11th away win came in the penultimate game of the 42-match season - whilst that record was only equalled in the final game of the (42 game) 1957/58 campaign.

The 2011/12 team now have three remaining away fixtures in which to beat the 80-year-old record, starting at Barnsley on 6th April. West Ham's final two away fixtures take place at Bristol City (17th April) and Leicester City (21st April).
