ANDREW Surman insists Cherries "can't dwell" on recent disappointments against Burnley as they head to Turf Moor tomorrow (3pm).

Cherries have struggled against Sean Dyche's side in the past couple of years, losing each of their last three meetings.

That includes two home defeats, most recently the late 1-0 reverse in December, and a 4-0 thrashing on their last visit to Burnley back in September 2018.

Cherries have won just once at Turf Moor in the club's history, a 2-1 success on the final day of the 2017-18 campaign thanks to goals from Joshua King and Callum Wilson.

But Surman says recent struggles against the Clarets count for nothing this weekend as they look to pull further clear of the relegation zone.

He told the Daily Echo: "That’s obviously in the past. We can’t dwell on those results, we’ve got to look forward and we’ve got to just focus fully on that game.

"It’s a one-off game. We’ve got to go and play at our best and fight for our survival.

"I think every game in the Premier League is a fight. Sheffield United was a fight. We’ve got to stand up and be counted.

"You’ve got to earn the right to play football, especially in the Premier League.

"Everything’s a physical battle and obviously there’s a lot of quality and quality will shine through if you win the battle so we’ve got to make sure we do that against Burnley."

Surman was a surprise inclusion for Cherries in their last top-flight match, a 2-1 defeat at Sheffield United earlier this month, as he replaced the suspended Jefferson Lerma.

The Colombian is back available again for the clash at Burnley.

Asked if he hopes his display at Bramall Lane was good enough to keep his spot this weekend, Surman said: "Of course, but Jeff’s done well as well.

"There’s competition for places, that’s up to the manager what he decides to do but whatever happens, the team that’s playing has got to go out and win the game."
