ANDONI Iraola expects to find time to reflect on a successful few months with owner Bill Foley over the coming days.

Foley is back in town and watched on as Cherries defeated Everton 2-1 on Saturday. He is due to be at Vitality Stadium again on this evening, when Crystal Palace visit the south coast.

It is the first time Foley has been in Bournemouth since October, when there was lot of noise around Iraola after a winless start to the Premier League season.

At the 10th attempt, Iraola got a victory, defeating Burnley 2-1 to ease the pressure as Foley watched on.

Asked if it will be nice to speak with the 79-year-old and look forwards, with Cherries sitting in a much healthier position this time around, Iraola told the Daily Echo: “Yes. It's good that the both times he has come we've won the games!

“I'm sure he will want to talk to me about the how the season has been and about the future.

“But I don't want to talk too much about the future because we still have a lot of games to play, a lot of points to try to win, and I will stay more focused on these things.”

Cherries sit 13th in the Premier League table with nine games to play. They are 16 points clear of the relegation zone and six points off a potential European qualification place.
