STAND-in skipper Danny Hollands has led the rallying cry from within the squad by insisting Cherries' players will continue to fight despite being docked 10 points.

With the Dean Court club entering administration yesterday, the Football League's standard points deduction sent Kevin Bond's side to the bottom of League One.

Safety is now 11 points away, but hard-working midfielder Hollands, who is set to lead the team at Luton this afternoon in the absence of injured pair Darren Anderton and Neil Young, says the players are "still confident".

"There's no chance we are going to give in," the 22-year-old told the Daily Echo.

"It's an even bigger game at Luton now because we've lost the 10 points. We've got to go out there and keep fighting."

Cherries are likely to become relegation favourites after yesterday's events but Hollands thinks that mentality could work in his team's favour.

He said: "It's come at a good time probably because we've done well for a string of games. We've got to make sure we continue that.

"Hopefully we can go on and beat teams higher in the league. We're looking forward to it in a way. A lot of people will write us off."

Meanwhile, Hollands has expressed his delight at being named Cherries captain for last week's game against Nottingham Forest.

The central midfielder, who has established himself as a fans' favourite this season following a number of all-action displays, led Bond's side out in the excellent 2-0 victory.

Hollands found it a "great honour" to be Cherries skipper and he is likely to continue the role this afternoon at Kenilworth Road.

He said: "I was a bit shocked. I've been captain before of other teams but not professionally.

"I was lucky to be captain because we have people like Josh Gowling, Russ Perrett and Lee Bradbury, but I was well chuffed.

"The gaffer didn't really tell me, Rob Newman told me. I thought he was winding me up but I was really happy to be captain.

"The game went well which was another bonus. It looks good for you to win as captain but I didn't know much about it until matchday."

Hollands, a former reserve and youth team skipper at Chelsea, also led his school, district and county sides in his younger days.

"It's a learning curve for me because I haven't done it as this level but I can learn from people like Neil Young," said Hollands.

"I assume he'll become captain (when fit again) but it's something I'd love to do if I'm here next year or, if Youngy is injured, I'd love to continue doing it.

"It was a big bonus. I was over the moon, the whole day was brilliant."
