SKIPPER Danny Hollands has expressed his gratitude towards the club's long-suffering supporters and he intends to richly reward their loyalty with on-field success.[LNB] Midfielder Hollands has been a solid performer as Cherries have set League Two alight this season with their promotion push catching many observers by surprise.[LNB] The team's impressive form under boss Eddie Howe has yielded increased attendances both home and away with Tuesday's crowd for the top-of-the-table clash against Dagenham and Redbridge falling just shy of 7,000.[LNB] Another bumper attendance is expected for the visit of Notts County in the FA Cup second round tomorrow.[LNB] And Hollands and his team-mates are hoping to send the home faithful home happy.[LNB] He told the Echo: The fans have been great for the whole season and they've supported us at home and away.[LNB] We want to give them something to cheer about because last season there were a lot of lows throughout the whole club.[LNB] The former Chelsea reserve team captain admits his side have a point to prove on home turf, having failed to defeat major rivals Chesterfield, Rochdale and Dagenham and Redbridge in recent outings.[LNB] He added: We've got to make sure we stick together and we have got a point to prove. There's no better way of doing that than starting against Notts County.[LNB] They've got some great players from higher leagues.[LNB] It's going to be a massive test for us but we thrive on things like that.[LNB]
