AFC Bournemouth: Tindall confident of strong performance from 'talented squad'

Bournemouth Echo: ASSISTANT BOSS: Jason Tindall ASSISTANT BOSS: Jason Tindall

JASON Tindall is confident Cherries will produce a strong display against Burton – regardless of which players are selected for the FA Cup clash.

Cherries could make changes and utilise their squad when the League Two high-fliers visit Dean Court for the rearranged third round tie tomorrow (7.45pm).

Winger Marc Pugh and strikers Tokelo Rantie and Brett Pitman could all start after lively cameo displays in the 3-0 defeat at Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

The likes of Shaun MacDonald, Steve Cook, Josh McQuoid and Mohamed Coulibaly could also come into contention following injury lay-offs.

Cherries assistant boss Tindall told the Daily Echo: “What we are lucky to have is such a talented squad and we are confident that whatever players come into the side will perform well.

“If we do make a few changes, it certainly won’t weaken us as a side and it might freshen us up a little bit with all the games we have had recently.”

A home clash with Liverpool awaits the winners but despite labelling that tie a “great incentive”, Tindall says Cherries are focusing fully on Burton.

He added: “What we can’t do is underestimate them in any way and we must show them the respect they deserve.

“If you take your eye off what is important, which is tomorrow's game, you can lose focus on the job in hand. Our main focus is on what we need to do tomorrow.”

Goalkeeper Ryan Allsop is expected to start as Lee Camp is ineligible.
