Baird's double earns Fulham 2-0 win at Stoke

Chris Baird's early double allowed Fulham to end its dreadful run of away results in the Premier League with a much-needed 2-0 victory at Stoke on Tuesday.
The Northern Ireland defender, who hadn't previously scored for Fulham, found the net with long-range strikes in the fourth and 10th minutes to ease the pressure on manager Mark Hughes, whose side started the match in the relegation zone.
It was the London club's third victory of the campaign _ and first away from home in the league in 27 attempts, a poor record that stretched back to August 2009.
The win provisionally lifted Fulham out of the bottom three, above Birmingham and Wigan, who both have games in hand.
