ANDREW Surman insists Cherries’ “job is not done” despite the win over Swansea on Saturday that saw them climb nine points clear of the Premier League’s bottom three.
Eddie Howe’s side also jumped three places in the table to 11th as a result of beating the Swans for a second time this season.
Cherries will spend this week at a training camp in Dubai, with their next Premier League outing at Southampton in a fortnight.
Surman told the Daily Echo: “Whenever we go away we are fully focused on the next game.We will be working hard.
"Our job is not done. We have 33 points and that is not going to keep us up.
"We are well aware our run-in last season was not great. We had some extremely tough games and we were in a different position, we already had 40 points.
"It is a little bit different this season. We need the points but this is a great start and now, hopefully, we can start looking up rather than down.”
Cherries comprehensively outplayed a managerless Swansea on New Year’s Eve.
But Surman claimed the Welsh side represented a different proposition altogether under the stewardship of Paul Clement.
“They are definitely a different team to the one we faced earlier in the season," added the midfielder. "They set up to frustrate more than they did then, when they were more open.
"Swansea have good players: Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente can really hurt you.
“We defended for our lives and that gave us the platform to get the win.”
