DETERMINED Dan Gosling urged Cherries to give “absolutely everything” as they battle to beat the Premier League drop.

Eddie Howe’s men have just five games remaining to climb out of the bottom three of the division and are now four points behind 17th-placed Watford with a game in hand.

Gosling is expected to be part of Howe’s squad when they host Tottenham at Vitality Stadium tomorrow (6pm).

Asked what experience of a relegation battle the club could use to their advantage during the run in, the all-action midfielder said: “We’ve been in a relegation battle every year from the start of the season. We’ve managed to pull out of it, some years quite comfortably.

“This is the first year of real danger, the first year of being in the relegation zone for quite a few weeks.

“But there are another three or four teams as well and we have to make sure that we give it absolutely everything.

“We can’t come to the end of the season and say we wish we tried harder.

“Obviously, quite a few words have been said. But this is the time to grind something out and hopefully we can do that.”

Gosling, who scored in a 4-1 defeat to Newcastle earlier this month, has been with the Dorset club for six years, having arrived on a free transfer in 2014.

He helped Eddie Howe’s men seal promotion to the top flight by winning the Championship back in 2015.
