CLAUS Jorgensen fears his former Cherries team-mate Neil Moss could jeopardise Blackpool's late push for promotion.

Jorgensen will be keen to play a part when the two sides go head to head in a League One showdown at Bloomfield Road tonight.

And the Faroe Islands international knows from his past experiences of playing alongside Moss that the Cherries keeper is a hard man to pass.

Jorgensen, who returned to Dean Court for a loan spell in 2004, helped the Tangerines chalk up a 3-1 win over Cherries in December - but has not featured in their past four games.

He told the Daily Echo: "I didn't know too much about Mossy before I went back to Bournemouth from Coventry but he was unbelievable during my loan spell.

"He made some amazing saves and kept us in so many games. We went on a run which almost took us to the play-offs and he was by far the most important player for us.

"You always need your defenders and goalkeeper to be solid when you go away from home and I know he's a very difficult man to beat.

"He's got a great deal of experience and, with Gareth Stewart waiting in the wings, Bournemouth are certainly very well equipped in that position."

Jorgensen scored 15 goals in 101 games after being signed on a free transfer from Danish outfit AC Horsens by Mel Machin in 1999. And he capped his first season in England by walking off with the prestigious Daily Echo-Mickey Cave supporters' player-of-the-year award.

He added: "Bournemouth is still my team in England and I would hate to see them go down. I've got too many friends down there who would rip my head off if I said anything different! My wife and her family are from Bournemouth and the place means a lot to me.

"There have been a few changes at the club recently and things always take a bit of time to settle down when that happens. Kevin Bond has got lots of contacts in football and I'm sure they will be okay.

"But they need to get out of the dogfight and catch the teams above them because there are always one or two who put a run together over the last 10 games so Bournemouth could still be overtaken.

"We're looking to get into the play-offs. We've got two games in hand and we want to take six points from them. We had a blip in February but went on an amazing run before Christmas and hope to get back to that sort of form.

"Bournemouth seem to have confidence now and it's going to be very hard for us.

"Once you've got confidence in your team, you still believe you can win even when you're under the cosh."
