Paul Scharner is happy to be heading to Molineux for Sunday's derby clash with Wolves, as West Brom continue to struggle at home.

At the Hawthorns this season, Albion have managed just eight points from a potential 36, however on the road, the Baggies have the sixth best record in the league after picking up 18 points.

Swansea came from behind to win 2-1 on Saturday to become the latest visitors to take three points away from their trip to the West Midlands.

Scharner told the Birmingham Mail: "It's a good question why we can't do well at home and if I start talking I might be here for a long time - I don't have the time to do that.

"It seems we're so well organised on the defence that it suits us more away as we don't have to make the play and the crowd is not awaiting anything.

"That's the difference at home because we're expected to dominate the game and at the moment we're not winning.

"Saturday was another home defeat and it's a very poor run we're on. We have to put this behind us and concentrate on Wolves.

"You have to take risks sometimes to try to get our luck back otherwise it might never change.

"If you look outside the weather is bad, it's freezing and the fans await something from us.

"We are still involved in that relegation battle but we need to get our home record right.

"We can't give the fans that at the moment so you can't blame them for booing us from the field.

"Sunday is an away game and maybe that's good. We have to look to away games because that's where we're getting points.

"The Wolves game is a special one and a derby so the rules are different.

"We have to be very strong because they got three points against QPR and the table is getting close."
