Stoke have only won one game in their last 22 Premier League away fixtures but admits that the poor record is not weighing on the minds of the players.

"There's no barrier," the Republic of Ireland striker told thisisstaffordshire.co.uk. "We don't go into any game thinking anything except trying to get a result.

"I didn't realise our record was so bad, so it would be something nice to improve on...well, we can only improve on it really."

Although their away form is not something that concerns Walters, he admits that he wants to do better for the Stoke fans who spend their hard-earned money travelling across England.

"They spend a lot of money and they are working-class people, so it would be nice to give them a win on the road," he added.

"The majority of teams are stronger at home and we want to carry on making it as hard as possible for teams coming to the Britannia Stadium.

"But obviously you want to take that away with you as well because we get tremendous support and it would be nice to give them more wins.

"We've got to keep chipping away at that record and if we can keep our home form going, then we can have a good end to the season."

Walters admits that although Stoke are very close to the magic 40 points it would be significant if Tony Pulis’ side managed to break into the top 10 for the first time.

"They spend a lot of money and they are working-class people, so it would be nice to give them a win on the road," he added.

"The majority of teams are stronger at home and we want to carry on making it as hard as possible for teams coming to the Britannia Stadium.

"But obviously you want to take that away with you as well because we get tremendous support and it would be nice to give them more wins.
