Away in the head for Lyttle.

Byline: PAUL O'HEHIR

Limerick v Sligo Rovers Tonight, 6.30pm

SLIGO ROVERS are seeking a badly needed first away win of the season when they hit Limerick this evening.

The Bit O'Red are scrapping at the bottom and have yet to spark under new boss Gerard Lyttle (above).

But he is refusing to get on his players' case about their miserable form on the road and said: "I don't believe players respond too well to that sort of pressure.

"It's not something I'll be reminding them of. Rather, I'll be using it as a challenge and I firmly believe we can do it.

"It would be unthinkable to go through a full season without winning away from home. We're the sixth best team in terms of home wins but we've the worst away record in the league - and that has to change."

Both sides are at full strength and New Zealand international Henry Cameron could make his Limerick bow.
