NICK CASE – BOURNEMOUTH

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

WHAT a turn­around at Bournemouth, af­ter a ter­ri­ble open­ing to the sea­son we ar­rived at a sunny Dean Court sit­ting pretty in sec­ond place.

The squad al­ways had the tal­ent, it just lacked di­rec­tion and the re­turn of Ed­die Howe, cou­pled with some smart ac­qui­si­tions in the trans­fer mar­ket have seen us rocket up the ta­ble.

Credit has to go to County who en­joyed a lot of pos­ses­sion and pro­vided a scare early on with a well-taken goal but when one of those shrewd sign­ings Brett Pit­man smashed us into a two-one lead with his sixth goal in six games there was no look­ing back.

Pit­man’s goal was sand­wiched by two lovely Matt Ritchie strikes, and it is this qual­ity in front of goal along with our cur­rent solid de­fen­sive unit that will hopefully see us through the next three games that we have to treat as if they are cup fi­nals and then maybe, just maybe, we will be play­ing in the Cham­pi­onship next sea­son.
