Wade Elliott, the Burnley midfielder, insists the team do not feel under pressure to start picking up away points as they prepare to take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane today. Despite making an excellent start to life in the top flight with three wins in their first six games, all Burnley's league success have come at Turf Moor and they are yet to earn a single point on the road. Elliott thinks it is a little early for the alarm bells to be ringing just yet. "We've lost the games, but we are probably more disappointed with the performances than the results," he said. "We knew to get anything against the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea [3-0 and 4-0 defeats] we would have to be at our very best and even then there is no guarantee that you are going to pick up points because they are the best of the best."
