I love looking at the League table and thinking HUMMMM Playoffs!!! what a diffrence a manager Makes!!! Eddie Howes Barmy army!!!! UTCIAD
Cherries have enjoyed an absolute goal-fest since Howe's return. The fourth goal owed much to a big chunk of luck but Howe has already got his team playing with real verve.

Lee Barnard hits the back off the net that's 10 in 3 games
Barnard shifts the ball on to his favoured right foot and lets fly from 20 yards. The shot took a wicked deflection to leave keeper Gillespie rooted to the spot.

Pugh gives Simek a torrid time once again and when at the byline, the Lancastrian thumps a low left-footed shot through keeper Mark Gillespie and into the far corner. Carlisle 1 Cherries 2
GOAL CHERRIES - Marc Pugh again on 31 minutes.
Both teams look dangerous going forward. Matty Robson causing particular problems down the Carlisle left.

@BmthEchoSport @bournemouthrfc 12-7 Southend - Scott Chislett with the try on 27 mins #echolive— @theonionsack 27 October 2012
Carlisle go straight up the other end and after a free-kick into the defensive wall, Paul Thirlwell brings a decent diving save from David James.
Frank Simek slip-up gifted the ball to Pugh following a long pass by Harry Arter. Pugh drew the keeper before a cool finish into the empty net.
GOAL CHERRIES - Marc Pugh in the ninth minute. Carlisle 0 Cherries 1
Lovely footwork from MacDonald to escape three tackles the highlight so far.
Quiet opening with no clear-cut chances as yet.
Lewis Grabban is up top with Lee Barnard. Josh McQuoid on the right flank.
And we're under way...

We'll also have some live updates from Bournemouth Lions' home clash with Southend.
DANGERMAN – JOE GARNER
As the central striker in a three-man attack, Garner is likely to pose the major threat to the Cherries defence this afternoon.
On loan from Watford, he has already netted four league goals in seven starts this term.
Having made his name with Carlisle, Garner was the subject of a big-money move to Nottingham Forest in 2008.
Following loan spells with Huddersfield and Scunthorpe, he switched permanently to Watford before moving back to Brunton Park on a temporary basis.
THE GAFFER – GREG ABBOTT
Born in Coventry, the 48-year-old spent the majority of his playing career as a versatile right-back/midfielder with Bradford City and Hull City.
A former academy coach with Leeds United, Abbott joined Carlisle United as assistant manager in July 2006.
Following John Ward’s exit from Brunton Park in late 2008, Abbott was appointed as his permanent successor after a stint in caretaker charge.
Abbott, who is the longest-serving manager in League One and ninth in the top four divisions, is assisted by former Republic of Ireland midfielder Graham Kavanagh.

PRE-MATCH THOUGHTS – EDDIE HOWE
“I have watched Carlisle a couple of times this season and they are a decent team.
“I think Greg has always had the same philosophy and he sets up his teams in a good way, so it will be a tough test for us.
“Greg has done a really good job there down the years and he has made them very competitive.”
Carlisle unchanged following their midweek win over Oldham Athletic here at Brunton Park.
Cherries team listed above. Boss Eddie Howe has made two changes. Charlie Daniels, back from suspension, replaces Steve Cook at left-back. Lewis Grabban has recovered from a foot injury to replace Donal McDermott. Cook and McDermott are on the bench.
