7:45pm

And we're off... 

7:45pm

In contrast, Cherries are three unbeaten in the league at Dean Court. 

Fixtures against Yeovil (W3-0), Ipswich (D1-1) and Watford (D1-1) along with wins at Reading (2-1) and Sheffield Wednesday (2-1) have seen Eddie Howe's men stabilise in the Championship. 

7:41pm

13th-placed Huddersfield are three points and three points ahead of Cherries in the Championship table. 

Terriers have failed to win any of their past four away games in the league, their last success coming at Bolton (1-0) at the start of December. 

Fixtures at Ipswich (L1-2), Brighton (D0-0), Burnley (L2-3) and QPR (L1-2) have yielded just a solitary point.

7:14pm

Here are the teams folks...

Camp, Francis, Ward, Elphick, Daniels, Ritchie, Arter, O'Kane, Surman, Pugh, Grabban. Subs: Cook, Harte, MacDonald, McQuoid, Pitman, Rantie, Allsop.

Can we make it to 15 games with only 3 wins tonight? Do we dare to take a shot and perhaps actually score a goal in open play? Are we to dream of our first league victory in 2014? Come 10 o'clock this evening I suspect we will all be reading the usual commenters say how beautiful the football was, but we were simpy lacking in the final third. How much longer is Howe going to persist with his flawed system. Only the patience of our mute Moscovite will tell. Regards.

Let's hope it is on tonight and that we get those three points! After the way we played on Saturday we only need that little bit extra finishing touch. Come on, boys, let's see some real result for all that effort! We're all supporting you.
