BOSS Jason Tindall said he paid no attention to Cherries being listed as favourites to land the Championship title but added: “It’s credit to the team if that’s the case.”

The Dorset club, who have won three out of their four opening league fixtures, are rated between 4-1 and 9-2 to win the division with most leading bookmakers.

Cherries had started the campaign at around 12-1 to win the league outright.

Asked about his side’s odds being slashed in the market, Tindall said: “It’s credit to the team if that’s the case.

“I don’t really check when we’re favourites or what price we are with the bookies.

“That’s the first I’ve heard of it, so credit to the team and the way they’ve started the season.”
