EDDIE Howe called for Cherries to be “very positive” with their mission to secure Premier League survival set to go down to the wire.

The Dorset club once again missed the opportunity to climb out of the bottom three after going down 1-0 at Wolves tonight.

But despite taking just one point from their past six games, only goal difference separates Cherries and 17th-placed West Ham.

The Cherries boss said: “It’s very tight. It’s going to go possibly down to the wire, who knows?

“From our perspective, we have to realise that although we are in a really difficult moment - the run of results is really disappointing – nothing is lost.

“There’s still everything to play for and we have to be very positive.

“There’s no being negative and down in the dumps and being that way will serve us no purpose whatsoever at this moment.

“We still have a chance to define our destiny and we have to stay very much in the present moment.”

Cherries host Newcastle in the Premier League next Wednesday before a trip to Manchester United on Saturday, July 4.
