EDDIE Howe is optimistic that victory at Huddersfield can provide a springboard to further successes on the road.

Prior to defeating the Terriers 2-0 on Saturday, Cherries had not won away in the Premier League since October.

That run stretched across nine league games – an unwanted club record in the top flight.

Asked if the losing streak had played on his mind, Howe told the Daily Echo: “I don’t think it really played on my mind as in over-analysing it.

“It was more losing games. Whether they are home or away, it doesn’t really matter. It’s losing which you analyse and think about how your team can play better.

“The away thing, it’s just good to stop talking about it with you guys (the media).

“We want to focus on positive things and, hopefully, the Huddersfield result will turn that.”
