AFC Bournemouth: Bolton's run can inspire Cherries charge says Howe

Bournemouth Echo: SEEKING A STRONG FINISH: AFC Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe SEEKING A STRONG FINISH: AFC Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe

BOSS Eddie Howe says Bolton’s exploits during the second half of last season can act as a spur as Cherries look to mount a strong finish to their campaign.

The Trotters were languishing in 20th at the start of February before a superb run saw them go within touching distance of gate-crashing the Championship play-offs.

Relegated from the Premier League in 2012, they registered 10 wins and four draws from their final 17 games and were pipped by Leicester on goal difference after finishing seventh.

Cherries, currently 13 points adrift of the top six and 10 clear of the bottom three, are five places in front of Bolton – who again find themselves 20th – ahead of tomorrow’s clash at the Reebok (3pm).

Howe told the Daily Echo: “What Bolton did last season shows what can be done by any team in the division. It is still tight and a lot of clubs, including us and them, will be looking both ways.

"A really good run of results could see you move up the table and into the promotion race and, likewise, you could be looking nervously over your shoulder if it were to go the other way.

“As Bolton showed last year, this is a great time to put together a run and have a consistent spell so you can enjoy the rest of the season.

"It can be done and we are aware what can happen in this division if you get the results that your performances merit. It is a big game for both teams.”

Bolton, 2-0 winners at Dean Court in November, host Cherries on the back of three successive defeats on the road, including a 7-1 hammering at Reading. Dougie Freedman’s team also lost 2-1 at QPR and 1-0 at Ipswich.

Howe added: “I have watched their past two games and they performed very well. They were unfortunate not to get any points from those two games and that is the type of division it is. From the performances I have seen, I would say they are in a false position.

“They have some very good individuals and a good manager. They have an experienced squad and a lot of players have played in the Premier League.

"At the start of the season, Bolton would have hoped to be competing for the top six but, for whatever reason, it hasn’t quite worked out for them.

“Although they will be disap-pointed to be where they are, it doesn’t mean it is going to be any easier for us. We have had a good run of home fixtures.

"Now, we are looking to pick up positive results on the road. I have been really pleased with our away form and performances and this will be another big test.”

Whilst I can't see us in the play offs (this year anyway) a run like that would make it exciting stuff to watch !

C’mon Eddie, let’s get brave! Two up-front and some goals in open play should do the trick. The one up-front tactic has been sussed out for the past few games now. I’m sure we’re safe but a few more three-pointers would make us secure and rev up this part of the season . Good luck tomorrow boys!!!

We have 17 games to go and will need to take 16 points or so from the 51 available and am confident that we will do better than that. All the top sides to come at home and some eminately winable/ six pointer games as well . Interesting times. Three points tomorrow will be very welcome. But there really aren't any easy games in this the most competitive Division in the Football League.

Totally agree Ted, lets put Yan and Graban up front and try to get a result up there. They are a decent side when they are on form but definately beatable.

Just look at their league position it is nothing to be scared of and we are a decent threat to any team in this league when we are on our game.

At dean court the Korean on the left wing was by far their biggest threat, so francis or smith needs to be at the top of their game, because this guy is skillful, has loads of pace, can score goals and set up goals

I would like to see them tried together, Grabbs is wasted drifting out on the right wing. Would've thought Yann & TK would be an interesting pairing too, perhaps this is the support that Rantie needs.

Agreed, that little guy was brilliant.
Would also help if Harry can get a grip on Jay Spearing in the middle. A good ex Liverpool pro, who can control the game, given the time and space.

Rubbish. 50 points should keep us up so 16 more needed. Only a major loss of form makes relegation a worry. We have still to play all the teams below us for second time. Win 3 or 4 of those and then relegation is very difficult. I predict 15/16/17.

I can't believe you keep on about rantie , yann has been drafted in because Eddie realised grabban was his only decent striker . And he will start with yann and grabbs . Surely you must of realised that secound half last week .. Just what a difference yann made on the game . First half last week we looked a poor side . But secound half we were fantastic ..

Which is correct 'must of realised or 'must have realised' so many on here use the former i.e. 'of' rather than 'have'. Is it pure laziness or an acceptable way of writing!!! No longer answers please!!!

It is `must have`.I think it has become acceptable due the phrase being spoken phonetically incorrect.In other words people are writing it the way they believe it sounds.A bit like saying pacific instead of specific(remember that one)or anythink instead of anything.However,I have noticed a couple of times this issue has been mentioned before.
