BOSS Jason Tindall believes Sunday’s showdown against Norwich should be “exciting” as Cherries look to signal their promotion aspirations.

Both teams have picked up four points from their opening two encounters back in the Championship after suffering relegation from the Premier League last campaign.

The sides are widely tipped to be competing for promotion at the business end of the season and Tindall believes Daniel Farke’s men will come to Dorset to attack.

Asked whether it was a chance to put down a marker to the rest of the division, Tindall told the Daily Echo: “It is and I am sure Norwich will be thinking the same.

“We are both sitting on four points currently and it should make for an exciting game.

“Norwich like to attack, like ourselves, they like to try to create chances and score goals. It should be a good game.

“It’s a game we are looking to take the confidence from our start so far into and, hopefully, go out there and deliver a really good, winning performance.”

The Canaries have added the likes of Jordan Hugill and Przemyslaw Placheta to their ranks this season, as well as agreeing loan deals for Burnley’s Ben Gibson and Tottenham’s Oliver Skipp.

“They have had a little bit of movement within the transfer window. They’ve brought a few players in and lost a couple,” said the Cherries boss.

“Both sides’ squads are slightly different but, in terms of style of play, it’s still the same.

“We didn’t manage to score against them in both games last year, hopefully that’s something we can address at the weekend.”
