ASSISTANT boss Jason Tindall wants Cherries to erase the memory of their FA Cup nightmare and get their League Two survival bid back on track.

Tindall said: “Previous to the Blyth game, our form had been very good. We were unbeaten in six and had only lost one in eight so we still feel we're in good form.

“Although things went against us at Blyth, we’ve got to put that behind us now and concentrate on what we’re doing against Bury. If we perform the way we were previous to the Blyth game then I feel we'll have every chance of winning.

“We’ve done our homework on Bury but I want to concentrate on our own performances and do what we feel we’re good at and let them worry about that.

“I think we’ve got enough in our armoury to give them as many problems as they feel they can give us. We will certainly be confident going into the game and, now we’re out of the cups, our focus is on the league.”

Cherries will be forced into a number of changes, with Danny Hollands, Mark Molesley and Brett Pitman all suspended, while skipper Shaun Cooper is out with an arm injury.

Tindall added: “One person’s loss could be someone else’s gain. Whoever comes in has got a great opportunity to take their chance. If they perform, they will stay in the team and the rewards will be there for them.”

Although Jimmy Quinn and his players came in for some fierce criticism from supporters following Cherries’ unexpected FA Cup exit at non-league Blyth, Tindall said he felt the stick was not justified.

“Anyone who thought going to Blyth was going to be an easy game doesn’t know too much about football,” said Tindall.

“Shrewsbury went there when they were flying at the top of our league and came unstuck, while Wycombe were beaten by Eastwood Town who are in a lower league than Blyth.

“Players don’t mean to play badly and they don’t mean to make mistakes. When it happens, people need to get behind them and encourage them to make them better and more confidence.

“I’m sure I could go into every office up and down the country today and sit beside people who will make more than one mistake. Do I then start criticising them?

“Our players are young and inexperienced and they need all the help they can get. If the fans can get behind them, the players will respond. We were all pretty much heartbroken on the way home from Blyth but we’ve got to putthat behind us and concentrate on the league.

“The league has always been our main priority. It was a big task with the points deduction but we’ve clawed them back and are in the black. We’re starting to perform quite well and need to keep it going in order to get ourselves out of the position we are in.”
