Cherries: Tubbs is keeping strike duo on their toes

BOSS Eddie Howe has highlighted the “importance” of Matt Tubbs to Cherries’ promotion push and insists the striker will have a major role to play during the run-in.

Howe believes Tubbs’ presence on the bench has been a key factor in strike pairing Lewis Grabban and Brett Pitman delivering the goods for Cherries this season.

But while the 28-year-old may have been used sparingly since Howe’s return in October, the Cherries boss believes Tubbs could soon be rewarded for his patience.

Tubbs has netted four times in 21 league appearances this season but has been restricted to only three starts – at home to Brentford and away to Swindon and Bury.

Howe told the Daily Echo: “Matt is a very good player. From a personal point of view, he has been unfortunate that Lewis and Brett have performed so well. We are the leading scorers in the division so, from our perspective, we haven’t wanted to change too much.

“What we do know is that if they are not performing, we have a quality player like Matt ready to take their place so I think that is keeping them sharp and motivated to perform at the level they are.

“I would have no qualms about playing Matt. I know he will score goals because his career record shows that. He has displayed a really good attitude to not being in the side. He has shown support for his team-mates and, whenever, he has come on, he has always looked like scoring.

“Matt may well have a big part to play in our run-in and could be the man we look to in the closing few games. He needs to keep himself in the best physical shape to take the chance when it comes and I know he will.”

Leading goalscorer Grabban has netted 13 times this season, including 12 in 20 under Howe, while Pitman has plundered nine in 12 league games since rejoining from Bristol City in November.

Howe added: “It is an area where we have good numbers but also where players have stayed fit and kept performing. If Matt played in a different position, no doubt he would have played more. He just needs to remain patient because I am sure he will get his chance.

“He is level headed and very focused and professional. It has been a hallmark of all the players who have been out of the team and they have all been very dedicated.

“Matt is similar to Brett and, when he plays, he will always get chances. He can sense the situations and gets himself in the right positions. He is also a very good finisher.

“He may not be getting the minutes he wants but he is involved and is coming off the bench regularly. He is an important member of our squad and could have a really big bearing on things between now and the end of the season.”

. Yeah, a major slip up for Tranmere. . . People will say we have been very lucky with way the results have gone for us recently...... BUT that is not the case. . . We gave them all a 19 point start and it has been a lot of hard graft and pure class that has got us where we are today. . . . We are the real deal.

I wouldn't say we've been that lucky with other results going our way. Maybe in terms of tranmere and doncaster slipping up but if anything we've been unfortunate not to pull further clear of the chasing pack. We're only 4 pts clear of seventh so can't really afford a blip, no one could have predicted yeovil's form since we battered them on boxing day! Think we'll win today, i'm going for 2-0 cherries. Preston seem to be in freefall. utciad

I agree with all of this. With Ritchie and Painter in the team I really can't see us slipping up today. However, having banked 6 away points where the general consensus was that 2 points would have been ample return, a draw today would be no loss....as it were.

Seen a few rumours about loaning players to Pompey now we are where we are and they are where they are. I think it's a good idea (as long as we have recall clauses) and may it help them and also help us, anyone have any thoughts on this?

I have always thought it would be a good idea to give Fletch a rolling monthly contract with Pompey. It would certainly give them some clout up front, plus keep Fletch match fit so he can slot back into the side if and when we need him. Preston away will be tough with a caretaker manager in place I'll take 1-0 any day. Before the season is out we are going to give somone a good 4-0 or 5-0 spanking. I can feel it coming. It would be nice to leave for Tramere on the last day of the season. That trip to Merseyside is definitely going to be a big one!

Constant refences to Jamo going back there - playing and coaching role ? Doubt if they could afford his wages though ?

I hope Tubbsy gets some games soon, weird having spent all that money that he has never really featured ...did he damage EM`s Bentley or even worse????

You make your own luck in this game. The harder you work, the luckier you get. The day we have to start relying on other teams doing us favours we are in trouble.

It's a good idea, we have had some players off them in the past when we have been in trouble and as they are no threat to us this season lets return the compliment and it helps us out as it gives our fringe players valuable match time

Also Pompey will almost certainly still have to play some of our promotion rivals, so could put a dent in their hopes.

For my third & final wish, and as a gesture of goodwill, i asked the genie to arrange for the best football team in Wiltshire to join my beloved Bournemouth in the championship next season and PING- there we were playing against.............

Inersting fantasy, if I were the genie I would have put you on the island surrounded with piles of money and no way off to spend it. Loads of bottles of beer and no bottle opener. Ten of the most beautiful women in the world- all gay. Then when you just about had enough of all this and want to watch a decent game of football- oh no you only asked for one decent team!. LOL
Actually on the subject of fantasy, wasn't it you who posted on here that you were pleased that some Bournemouth supporter(s) was/were predicting Swindle to go up with us.
ARE YOU MAD. You didn't actually fall for that tongue in cheek comment did you.????????.
How would you know the comments were tongue in cheek unless you post here under different names. Just because we dont support the same club doesn't mean we cant exchange honest views, and without being insulting!. To be a Swindon fan at present- yes you do need to be a bit mad. As I've posted on this site before I think the Two automatic places are between you, Swindon, Donny, Sheff utd and very probabily Yeovil. If you get 3 points today its going to be fun trying to catch you.

. STEADY EDDIE, . . . . . Did we not have to rely on Tranmere & Sheffield United dropping 9 points ?
The point i was making is that we cant control what happens with other teams. All we can do is try and win our own games and collect as many points as possible.
As we are all aware, this is a very competetive league where inevitably there will be some surprise results.
Any team that collects 50 pts from a possible 63 will definately rise rapidly up the league, as we have. This kind of form is the exception rather than the norm, so no i dont think we have relyed on others, it's just how things have worked out.

Look, as good as Swindon may be, and you have as much of a chance of promotion as most, you will be hard- pushed to get any afcb fan to actually admit that in all sincerety.
You seem like a sensable enough fan unlike most of your fellow Swindon idiots that come on here.
Just accept it for what it is, we are rivals and we dont share your obvious passion for Swindon. If by chance you should get promoted i will be the first on your site to offer congrats.
Forgive me if i dont respond to any more of your posts, but we do have a very important game today. 3 more pts for the cherries plz.!!!!!!.
